The auction of the art collection and personal items of the late American Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has resulted in the sum of $803,650, with those proceeds going to the Washington National Opera.

Ginsburg died in September 2020 at the age of 87. She was a lover of the arts and especially of opera.

The sales would be « a huge help this year as we try to cultivate the return of our audience, » said Francesca Zambello, the Artistic Director of the Washington National Opera and a personal friend of Ginsburg’s.
