We direct your attention to the New Yorker, where Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has told the magazine’s classical music critic Alex Ross about her favorite records. Bow howdy is there some good music here (it’s all opera, so stop reading if you don’t care about that).
Some selections including Verdi’s Otello, Dvořák’s Rusalka, Eugene Onegin by Tchaikovsky and The Rake’s Progress by Stravinsky.
Listen, this isn’t exactly news, but it’s not every day you hear someone say their favorite opera is Otello. Good enough for us! The full list is here.
