“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. As One is one of the most produced contemporary operas in the world and according to Opera News is: ‘A piece that haunts and challenges its audience with questions about identity, authenticity, compassion and the human desire for self-love and peace.’ Steamboat Opera’s production of As One is historical; for the first time in its performance history, the cast, director and conductor will all be members of the transgender community.”
