In Our Own Voices

In Our Own Voices is a chamber opera with libretto by Sarah Carleton and music composed by Eliane Aberdam which will premier in Rhode Island.

The performance explores the story of two transracial adoptees, Brooke and Olivia, as they search for their birth parents. A story not so much about answers but about the questions that many adoptees face, this story steps into the complex questions that many transracial adoptees wrestle with - questions of identity, race, loss, and belonging.
