Free online event

Ruth Bader Ginsburg worked tirelessly to promote equal justice under the law throughout her life and career. But when she needed a respite from the pressures of the Supreme Court, Justice Ginsburg famously turned to the world of opera and classical music. Hosted by multiple Grammy Award winner Isabel Leonard—and featuring an interview with Justice Ginsburg’s children, alongside remarks and performances by Joyce DiDonato, Renée Fleming, Denyce Graves, and Patrice Michaels—Carnegie Hall celebrates and honors the groundbreaking icon who gave so much of herself to ensure a more just world for us all.
