With two singers and a string quartet, As One is an uplifting coming-of-age story about a transgender woman. This new, 75-minute chamber opera depicts the experiences of its sole transgender protagonist, Hannah, as she endeavors to resolve the discord between herself and the outside world. Two singers, a baritone and a mezzo-soprano, portray the character of Hannah. Inspired in part by the life experiences of acclaimed filmmaker Kimberly Reed, As One’s rich libretto–and evocative melodies and harmonies–make it an unforgettable work.
