Composer Victoria Bond “...has struck gold in the story of Victoria Woodhull, the first woman to run for the American presidency, in 1872,” according to Allan Kozinn of the New York Times.
Victoria Woodhull and her political views were a hundred years before their time and continue to strike a chord on the American Political scene. The opera is a classic story of political intrigue, betrayal and sex.
See the world premiere performances of this opera that is destined to become a classic! For more history and background on the opera go to Mrs. President the Opera.
