This January 25-28, come see As One, a one act chamber opera for two voices and string quartet, from the same librettist of the BLO's recent world premiere of Mr. Burke & Mr. Hare
One of the most timely and in demand operas in America today. Accompanied by a string quartet, a mezzo-soprano and a baritone share the journey of a sole transgender protagonist -- Hannah before and Hannah after transition -- as she strives to reconcile the discord between her identity and the outside world. From her childhood inklings that she is different to her first steps toward transition and the deeper discoveries of herself, As One tells Hannah’s story with compassion and humor, through a powerful libretto and a pulsating, harmonic score.
