I think today, a week later, it only be befitting to give this post in honor to the great ,brave and inspiring Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The late Supreme Court justice adored opera, and to feed her habit, she often turned to Philadelphians or artists closely associated with the city, and the orchestra here .Ginsburg, who died last Friday, was a lifelong devotee of classical music, and once played piano and cello. Opera, though, had a special allure. She was also quoted once as saying she couldn't imagine life without music.
So in honor of Ruth here is one of her many favorite operas and opera stars performing the entire opera. I myself am not a knowledgeable opera fan, but I can see why she liked this one, I listened to the entire opera and it did move me. So hit play and have a listen in the background. This is for Ruth.
