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.
Carnegie Hall Master Class
Relive highlights from three of Joyce DiDonato’s Carnegie Hall master classes. A favorite of audiences at the Hall and the Metropolitan Opera, the mezzo-soprano mentors young singers at the beginning of their careers, exploring many of the intricacies of operatic singing with a particular focus on arias by Handel and Puccini. Mezzo-soprano Kayleigh Decker—who participated in DiDonato’s first master class at Carnegie Hall in 2015—is now enjoying a thrilling career at Lyric Opera of Chicago and opera houses around the globe. Be there when DiDonato catches up with her in an online chat.
