SCALIA/GINSBURG 

BY DERRICK WANG

 

& TRIAL BY JURY

BY GILBERT AND SULLIVAN

Orchestration by Derrick Wang

APRIL 16 (7:30 PM), APRIL 17 (7:30 PM) & APRIL 18 (2:00 PM), 2020 at the Valentine Theatre

 

Derrick Wang's Scalia/Ginsburg is an American comic opera inspired by the unlikely friendship of U.S. Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia. Launched at a special presentation at the Supreme Court of the United States in 2013, Scalia/Ginsburg received its world premiere production in 2015 to rave reviews. Gilbert & Sullivan’s Trial by Jury is a joy of courtroom banter and farce. Plaintiff Angelina sues the fickle defendant, Edwin, for breach of marriage promise. Through much compromise and hilarity, the judge resolves he should marry Angelina himself. One of G&S’s early collaborations remains one of their most good-humored—with a quintessentially British dry wit.

Trial by Jury kicks off this evening of courtroom hilarity with Scalia/Ginsburg anchoring the second half.

Tickets from the 2020 performances will be honored on these dates. We hope to offer additional seats in the near future!

 

Performed in English with English supertitles.

Aida 2020

AIDA

BY GIUSEPPE VERDI

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2 (7:30 PM) & SUNDAY OCTOBER 4 (2:00 PM), 2020 at the Valentine Theatre

 

The first opera ever produced in Toledo in 1959, Aida launched both the Toledo Opera Guild and what would become today’s Toledo Opera. Set in ancient Egypt, Aida is a classic story of forbidden love. Radames, the Egyptian Captain of the Guard, falls in love with the beautiful Aida, an enslaved Ethiopian Princess, and is sentenced to death after he is accused of conspiring with her. Buried alive in a tomb, he discovers Aida has hidden herself inside in order to share his fate in the opera’s heartbreakingly-beautiful final scene, conducted by Maestro Dean Williamson and staged by director Jeffrey Buchman.

Starring Metropolitan Opera Soprano Jennifer Rowley as Aida and Carl Tanner as Radamès

 

Performed in Italian with English supertitles.
