“As One is the hottest title in opera right now...written in the last 100 years." - Denver Post

"As One forces you to think, simultaneously challenging preconceptions and inspiring empathy." —The New York Times

“A piece that haunts and challenges its audience with questions about identity, authenticity, compassion and the human desire for self-love and peace.”
—Opera News

Music and Concept by Laura Kaminsky
Libretto by Mark Campbell and Kimberly Reed

New 2017 productions from Pittsburgh Opera, Opera Colorado, Long Beach Opera, New Orleans Opera, and San Diego Opera!

In As One, a mezzo-soprano and a baritone depict the experiences of its sole transgender protagonist, Hannah, as she endeavors to resolve the discord between herself and the outside world. As One traces Hannah's experiences from her youth in a small town to her college years on the West Coast, and finally to Norway where she is surprised at what she learns about herself.

As One was commissioned, developed, and premiered by American Opera Projects at BAM Fisher Center in Brooklyn, NY in September, 2014, and has already been performed by nine different opera companies throughout the United States and beyond.

 

The AOP 2016-17 season is made possible by The Aaron Copland Fund for Music, Inc., BMI, Howard Gilman Foundation, the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and the contributions of many individuals.
