Opera Fringe: “As One”
- 7:30 pm on Saturday, October 5, 2019
A chamber opera for two voices and String Quartet. Music and Concept by Laura Kaminsky | Libretto by Mark Campbell & Kimberly Reed | Film by Kimberly Reed | Music Direction by William Lumpkin | Stage Direction by Jim Petosa. 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 accompanied by string quartet 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. – asoneopera.com College of Fine Arts, Studio ONE | 855 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston $10 General Admission | Free with BU ID, at the door, day of performance, subject to availability | Non-BU tickets available at the door CASH ONLY
