Gertrude Opera presents the Australian premiere of the groundbreaking and acclaimed chamber opera As One as part of the 2020 Midsumma Festival.
Inspired by the work of transgender filmmaker and librettist Kimberly Reed, As One is the world’s first opera to depict the transgender experience, tracing the journey of protagonist Hannah from her small town youth, to her college years, overseas travels and personal discoveries.
Featuring fifteen songs that comprise the three-part narrative, the role of Hannah is shared by mezzo-soprano Lotte Betts-Dean and baritone Joshua Erdelyi-Gotz, under the direction of Gertrude Opera Artistic Director Linda Thompson, joined by Chicago based conductor Alexandra Enyart.
