Gothenburg based opera group Utomjordiska presents the chamber opera As One, where two singers, a baritone and a mezzo-soprano, both portray the character Hannah. With humor and empathy, As One chronicles a transgender person’s inner journey toward self-realization.

As One is a chamber opera in which two voices—Hannah after (mezzo-soprano) and Hannah before (baritone)—share the part of a sole transgender protagonist. Fifteen songs comprise the three-part narrative; with empathy and humor, they trace Hannah’s experiences from her youth in a small town to her college years – and finally traveling alone to a different country, where she realizes some truths about herself.

Commissioned by American Opera Projects, As One opened on September 4, 2014, at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Fisher Space. Since its premiere, it has become the most produced new opera in North America, according to Opera America magazine.

Music & concept – Laura Kaminsky
Libretto – Mark Campbell & Kimberly Reed
