The Minnesota premiere of AS ONE
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.”

Our first production: The Tragedy of Carmen, in February 2017, was met by resounding reviews and sold-out crowds. This adaptation by Peter Brook of George Bizet's Carmen utilized only six singer/actors: stripped down, bare-bones, it created an unconventional hybrid where music and words are equal partners. It attracted not only the opera fan, but the theater-goer as well. In June of 2017, Skylark Opera Theatre presented a sensational production of Don Giovanni set in the Prohibition (1932) which sold out well before opening. The reviews were as spectacular as the show.
