Matilda Joslyn Gage, the subject of a new opera “Pushed Aside: Reclaiming Gage”

 

Matilda Joslyn Gage, perhaps one of the most ardent yet least known leaders of the women’s suffrage movement, is the subject of a new opera premiering this weekend in Syracuse.  Mid-day host Diane Jones had the chance to speak to Persis Parshall Vehar, the composer of this new opera, about Gage, her place in history, and the challenges of bringing such a vibrant character to the stage.
