SKYLARK OPERA THEATRE
The Minnesota premiere of
Music and Concept by Laura Kaminsky
Libretto by Mark Campbell and Kimberly Reed
Starring Luke Williams as Hannah Before and Bergen Baker as Hannah After
Robert Neu, Director
Jeffrey Stirling, Music Director
“Laura Kaminsky’s chamber opera, As One, had its world premiere at BAM’s Fisher Space on September 4, 2014. The draw of As One, which has a libretto by Mark Campbell and Kimberly Reed, lies in its very human depiction of the internal and external issues faced by transgender individuals in the twenty-first century. Commissioned by American Opera Projects, As One is one of the first operas, if not the first, to address this topic; however, it is not just the “transgender opera” but 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
“As One forces you to think, simultaneously challenging preconceptions and inspiring empathy … [with] winning humor and a satisfying emotional arc.”
– The New York Times
