Justice Scalia's bright moment

Justice Antonin Scalia gets a personal aria from soprano Lyubov Petrova at the Washington National Opera's opening of "Ariadne auf Naxos" Sat., Oct. 24, 2009. (Karin Cooper/Washington National Opera)

The party animals on stage Saturday at Kennedy Center Opera House had impressive titles: Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, professor Martin Ginsburg, Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton and philanthropist Adrienne Arsht. The five were supernumeraries (non-singing performers) at the opening of the Washington National Opera's "Ariadne auf Naxos" -- they played wealthy dinner guests and sat onstage for the entire second act. Scalia inadvertently stole the show: At one point in the opera, soprano Lyubov Petrova sat on his lap, draped her arm around him and flirted shamelessly; the justice turned beet-red and the audience erupted in laughter.
