An Oklahoma Premiere
As One tells the coming-of-age story of a transgender woman whose journey is depicted with humor and empathy by two singers — Hannah before and Hannah after. The opera follows Hannah from childhood to college and adulthood to self-realization when she travels alone to a different country. This powerful and unforgettable work comes to Oklahoma City in a new production after dozens of performances across the United States over the last five years.

Painted Sky Opera is proud to present As One in partnership with Oklahoma Contemporary in the new Te Ata Theater. This is Painted Sky Opera’s first production at Oklahoma Contemporary.

Presented in English with string quartet. Our in-person audience for each performance will be limited by social-distancing constraints. Buy tickets below to watch in person on May 14-16, via livestream on May 15 or on demand from May 15 to June 15. Information on how to access the video stream will be sent to you a couple of days prior to the livestream performance.

Join us an hour and a half before each in-person show for a drink, snacks and a program on the terrace. Painted Sky and Oklahoma Contemporary will precede this groundbreaking opera with a pre-show talk with members of the Oklahoma City transgender community. On Saturday, we will also feature a talkback with the performers post-show.
