Hannah After in As One

Elise returns to Pensacola Opera for her 8th production with the company! She will revisit the role of Hannah after in Laura Kaminsky’s extremely popular and relevant opera, As One. Libretto by Mark Campbell and Kimberly Reed, who also created the beautiful projections.

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 forces you to think, simultaneously challenging preconceptions and inspiring empathy." 
—The New York Times

“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
