At the American Opera Project website, www.aopopera.org, you can view four recent operas:
- As One (Laura Kaminsky): As One, which had its world premiere at BAM in September, 2014, is a chamber opera in which two voices—Hannah after (mezzo-soprano) and Hannah before (baritone)—share the part of a sole transgender protagonist. This earned rave reviews when it premiered.
- Three Way: A Trio Of One-Act Operas (Robert Paterson): This set premiered in 2017, and as the title implies, it’s about sex, love, and has what in that context could be called a cheeky attitude.
- Harriet Tubman: When I Crossed That Line To Freedom (Nkeiru Okoye): Also premiering in 2014, Harriet Tubman is a two act realization of how a young girl born in slavery became Harriet Tubman.
- The Echo Drift (Mikael Karlsson): This is an experimental opera that opened at the Prototype Festival in 2018, a gorgeous piece about the experience of time and isolation, which is not just relevant but also the core of every operatic idea.
