The world premiere of “Mrs. President,” an opera by composer Victoria Bond, will be in Anchorage, Alaska on October 5 & 7, 2012.
Victoria Woodhull (1838 – 1927) was a pioneer of the woman’s suffrage movement, and advocate for free love, the first woman to have a seat on the New York Stock Exchange, the first woman to start a newspaper, and the first female candidate for President of the United States. No stranger to either poverty or wealth, Woodhull’s career was an ebb and flow of successes and controversies.
