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.
Post-Show Panels: Following each performance of As One, attendees are invited to stay for a 30-minute discussion with a variety of guests. These conversations will examine and elucidate the transgender experience. All As One ticketholders are welcome to attend following the performance.
