Alaska audiences don’t usually get to see the world premiere of a major art performance. But this weekend that will change, when the Anchorage Opera stages “Mrs. President.” The opera tells the remarkable-but true- story of Victoria Woodhull, the first woman to run for President of the United States in 1872.
Mrs. President will be performed at the Discovery Theater Friday Oct. 5 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Oct. 7 at 4 p.m.
