ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As one, by Laura Kaminsky with a libretto by Mark Campbell and Kimberly Reed, performed by baritone Kelly Markgraf (Hannah before), mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke (Hannah after) and the Fry Street Quartet. Conducted by Steven Osgood.

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

“As One is everything that we hope for in contemporary opera: topical, poignant, daring, and beautifully written. “ —New York Classical Review

"An elegantly realized chamber opera…" —Slate.com
