In this chamber opera by composer Laura Kaminsky, 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. You will be moved, and perhaps a little enlightened, by this critically acclaimed production.
As One will star Pittsburgh Opera’s Resident Artists, and be performed in the intimate environs of Pittsburgh Opera Headquarters.
Commissioned and developed by American Opera Project, As One received generous funding from OPERA America’s Opera Discovery Grants for Female Composers Program, supported by the Virginia B.
