It will be directed by Louisa Proske and conducted by Daniela Candillari, featuring soprano Felicia Moore as Susan B. Anthony.
Performances will run February 8, 11, 12 and 14, 2020 at 7 p.m., at The Charles Engelhard Court, Metropolitan Museum of Art. Tickets start at $105.
This production is presented as part of Project 19, the New York Philharmonic's multi-season initiative marking the centennial of the 19th Amendment.
