RBG was notoriously passionate about opera. It’s no surprise that the plots of her favorite operas often paralleled her professional pursuit of justice. To mark her 88th birthday, the first since her passing, we are celebrating with performances of some of her favorite opera arias.
The program will feature performances from NMAJH’s Dell Theater by tenor Joshua Blue, baritone Norman Garrett, and sopranos Michelle Rice and Ashley Marie Robillard; piano accompaniment by Stephen Karr and Grant Loehnig; as well as remarks and reflections by Francesca Zambello (stage director, artistic director for the Washington National Opera and the Glimmerglass Festival), Lawrence Brownlee (tenor, Artistic Advisor of Opera Philadelphia) and Peter Kazaras (stage director, tenor, Director of Opera UCLA).
