“As One forces you to think, simultaneously challenging preconceptions and inspiring empathy…[with] winning humor and a satisfying emotional arc.”
—The New York Times
“A rich addition to the repertoire…formidable on all fronts…As One is everything that we hope for in contemporary opera: topical, poignant, daring, and beautifully written. “
—New York Classical Review
“A piece that haunts and challenges its audience with questions about identity, authenticity, compassion and the human desire for self-love and peace.”
“Artistically distinguished, socially important…says so much with relatively modest means.”
A thoughtful and substantial piece as well as that rarest of operatic commodities — a story that lends itself to dramatization in music.
—The Washington Post
