Despite having opposing political beliefs, the late Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg shared a love of opera. That relationship is playfully examined in Anchorage Opera’s upcoming production of “Scalia/Ginsburg.” It incorporates classic opera stylings (with a twist) that promises to be well-suited for the veteran attendee or someone new to the genre.

On this episode of State of Are we’re joined by “Scalia/Ginsburg” leads Dane Suarez and Rachel Policar.
