Presented by Lyric Opera of Kansas City
Michael & Ginger Performing Arts Building | 712 E 18th St, KCMO 64108

Aligned. At Peace. As One.

In this one act opera, a baritone and a mezzo-soprano depict the sole transgender protagonist, Hannah, as she strives to resolve the discord between herself and the outside world. Honest, raw, and humorous, As One’s universal message is that everyone wants to be at peace with themselves. Composer Laura Kaminsky teamed with co-librettists Mark Campbell (Silent Night) and Kimberly Reed to create this uplifting work, based partly on Reed’s own experiences. Reed also provided projection design for the production.

Tickets are $25.

POSSIBLY THE MOST BEAUTIFUL. DEFINITELY THE MOST TRAGIC.

Your tissues will need tissues when court jester Rigoletto tries to protect his daughter from the powerful Duke who's dead-set on defiling her. Verdi's gritty story of revenge will surprise you with radiant melodies and some of the most recognizable arias in all of opera.

Sung in Italian with English subtitles.
