Opera Steamboat to Present Historic ‘As One’

By David Salazar

Colorado-based Opera Steamboat is set to present “As One” in a production featuring an all-transgender team.

The opera by Laura Kaminsky, Mark Campbell, and Kimberly Reed will star Lucas Book as Hannah Younger and Nikola Printz as Hannah Older. Eden Lane will direct while Alexandra Enyart will conduct. This is the first time in the opera’s history that all members of the creative team are members of the transgender community.

The opera will be presented at the Strings Music Pavilion on Sept. 24, 2022 at 7 p.m.

“As One” is the final opera in the company’s summer festival following performances of “Company,” “La Bohème,” and “The Three Feathers.”
