A Tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was opera’s “greatest advocate“ and a true lover of the art form. Today we pay tribute to her with the help of soprano Christine Goerke and pianist Bradley Moore, who perform an aria from Beethoven’s Fidelio—a work that Ginsburg said gave her “the greatest hope for the future.“ Filmed live on Lincoln Center’s campus with Bradley Moore at the piano, the aria, with its strong independent female heroine, is a fitting tribute to the woman who fought tirelessly for justice throughout her career.
