DOUBLE BILL | Scalia/Ginsburg | Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia shared two things — a deep philosophical opposition and a deep love of opera. But what would happen if the two unlikely friends and ideological opposites had to appear before a Higher Power? Composer Derrick Wang’s charming comic opera — featuring actual lines from the justices’ opinions and speeches and musical nods to Handel, Mozart, and Puccini — is “a perfect...jewel.” (Opera Today) Starring Jennifer Zetlan as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Brian Cheney as Justice Antonin Scalia, and Ben Wager as the Commentator.

Trial by Jury | Disorder in the court! After being left at the altar, the beautiful Angelina takes her former fiancé to court for breach of contract, charming everyone along the way. The verdict is unanimous: Gilbert & Sullivan’s courtroom romp is a delight.

Directed by Fenlon Lamb (Scalia/Ginsburg) & Cynthia du Pont Tobias (Trial by Jury). Conducted by Sara Jobin.

Performed in English with English supertitles.
