Pacific Opera Project to Present Double Bill

By Francisco Salazar

Pacific Opera Project is set to give the LA premiere of “Scalia/Ginsburg” in a double bill with Gilbert & Sullivan’s “Trial by Jury.”

The opera is set to be presented between Nov. 17 and 26 at The Highland Park Ebell Club. It will include food and wine at table seating.

Artistic Director Josh Shaw’s new libretto for “Trial by Jury” moves the setting from England to a 1980s divorce court. The cast of “Scalia/Ginsburg” will include tenor Robert Norman as Scalia, soprano Rachel Policar as Ginsburg alongside her role as Angelina in Trial by Jury, bass Paul An as The Commentator in Scalia/Ginsburg and also as The Usher in Trial by Jury.

Additional cast members include Todd Strange as Edwin, William Grundler as The Judge, David Harrington as The Foreman, and Christine Li as The Council. Caleb Yanez Glickman conducts this production directed by POP’s Founding Artistic Director, Josh Shaw.
