New York Times Music Critic Recalls 1980s Emerson Production of “The Mother of Us All”

Anthony Tommasini, music critic for The New York Times, wrote a piece fondly recalling an opera production that Distinguished Artist-in-Residence Scott Wheeler directed at Emerson in the 1980s, “The Mother of Us All,” in advance of a New York Philharmonic performance with the Juilliard School and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in February.

The opera details the life of suffragist Susan B. Anthony, and is in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment to the Constitution, which gave women the right to vote.
