Victoria Woodhull, the first woman to run for President of the US (1872)

 

Victoria Bond is the first woman to have received a doctorate in conducting from Juilliard.  She is also the composer of the opera, “Mrs. President, The Opera,” telling the story of Victoria Woodhull, the first woman to run for President of the United States.  She joined mid-day host Diane Jones to talk about Woodhull, as well as telling us a bit about how the opera came to be and the challenges of telling a life story on stage.

Information about this weekend’s performance of “Mrs. President, The Opera” can be found at the Lyric Theatre website here.

Learn more about the opera here, and about Victoria Bond here.
