Denyce Graves was the perfect guest to launch WFMT’s new digital series! The celebrated mezzo-soprano discusses her career, her relationship with the late Justice Ginsburg, and diversity, equity, and inclusion in the opera world.
Even though Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg disagreed on many things, what united them was humor and a love for opera. Composer, librettist, and former attorney Derrick Wang reveals how he created an opera about these two influential figures.
The 2010s were a tumultuous decade, replete with astounding artistic highlights, superlative new voices, and watershed moments of reckoning. WFMT hosts and staff reflect on what the past decade brought for classical music, and what the new decade may have in store.
