Jennifer Williams interviews Laura Kaminsky, acclaimed composer of As One, the first opera about a transgender protagonist. Since its premiere in 2014 by American Opera Projects at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, As One quickly became the most frequently produced new opera in North America. We discuss the genesis of her landmark work and how an artist can expand the narrative of the human experience we see and hear on stage. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
