Composer Derrick Wang Discusses His Opera "Scalia/Ginsburg"

Sep 21, 2020

Derrick Wang is a composer, writer, and creator of the opera “Scalia/Ginsburg,” a crash course on the U.S. Constitution and the people who uphold it that ushered in the current era of Supreme Court-themed art. Hailed as a “perfect…jewel” (Opera Today) and “the kind of opera that should be everywhere” (OperaWire), “Scalia/Ginsburg” was premiered at the Castleton Festival.

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 first having seen Scalia/Ginsburg?”
