As One

Eugene Opera

Keturah was honored to be asked to direct Laura Kaminsky, Mark Campbell, and Kimberly Reed’s immensely important and popular opera about a transgender woman’s journey to find her true self.  Using Kimberly Reed’s evocative films, a minimal set, and an onstage string quartet, Keturah’s movement-heavy storytelling was on full display.

"Rather than the misunderstandings, feuds, and mistaken identities that pepper the plots in the traditional operatic scene, As One deals with some of the same issues, but on an even more personal, introspective, and emotionally overwhelming level."
