According to The New York Times, Supreme Justice: The Battle for Gay Rights, a composition focusing on the struggle for marriage equality will feature during the 2015-2016 season at Pace University's Schimmel Center in Lower Manhattan.
Described by the Schimmel Center as a work that "portrays the struggle of the country's highest court to expand the definition of equal rights for all people, regardless of sexual orientation," Gary S. Fagin's piece, written for a soprano, baritone, vocal ensemble and orchestra, will feature portrayals of Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
"Though frequent and vociferous antagonists on the Supreme Court, Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg are friends socially," says Fagin on the odd couple, whose vibrant language makes for "the opportunity for a uniquely dramatic musical portrayal."
The March 18 program will also showcase the talents of the Knickerbocker Chamber Orchestra, of which Fagin is the music director and conductor.
So that's Ruth Bader Ginsberg squaring off with Scalia accompanied by classical music. If you're looking for a dose of high culture, this seems like the hot ticket.
The Schimmel's season, runs September 19 to May 21.
