Seattle Opera is excited to bring a different kind of opera experience to a historic venue in the heart of our city! This November, join us at the iconic Washington Hall in Seattle’s Central District for the intimate chamber opera As One, a contemporary exploration of a transgender protagonist’s journey told through two voices. With empathy and humor, we experience Hannah’s youthful challenges in a small town,  her struggles with family, her discovery of the larger trans community, and her inspiring journey to be true to herself. As One is performed by a baritone and a mezzo-soprano with string quartet.

We are excited to partner with historic Washington Hall for this special presentation. The iconic venue has been a fixture in Seattle’s multi-cultural perform
