Opera with RBG

Today we remember Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who was a champion of people and opera!

Justice Ginsburg attended opera for the first time at age eleven and was hooked, loving everything about it. Here is an interview with Justice Ginsburg talking about her top five must see operas.

“Most of the time, even when I go to sleep, I'm thinking about legal problems. But when I go to the opera, I'm just lost in it. Loving it.” - Justice Ginsburg in a 2015 interview
