Double Bill: Scalia/Ginsburg, an Opera by Derrick Wang and Trial by Jury by Gilbert and Sullivan with orchestration by Derrick Wang
Sung in English with projected text.

All Rise! January brings a unique double-bill as Opera Naples goes to court. Gilbert and Sullivan’s Trial by Jury started the string of hit operettas that captivated Victorian London. A “breach of promise” case leads to legal hi-jinks and court-ordered laughter in this gem of a lyric comedy. Just as clever—and charming—is Derrick Wang’s Scalia/Ginsburg, a “fiercely entertaining crash course on the U.S. Constitution and the people who uphold it” (Broad Street Review). Inspired by the unlikely friendship of the titular U.S. Supreme Court Justices, this “perfect…jewel” (Opera Today) was first heard in 2013 at the Supreme Court—and the verdict was unanimous: Scalia/Ginsburg is a hit. The Los Angeles Times wrote: “Could we please make it a constitutional requirement that no one can be sworn into office in the White House or Congress without having first seen Scalia/Ginsburg?” A wonderful glimpse into the lives of these two famous Americans.

*All VIP section tickets ($95) include a backstage Champagne reception post-performance to meet the artists.
