One of New York City’s most innovative opera companies, City Lyric Opera (CLO), presents the New York premiere of Uncovered, a chamber opera that plumbs the dramatic intersection of abortion, fundamentalism, and homosexuality within a true story. Uncovered is composed by Lori Laitman, one of the foremost composers of classical vocal music today, with a libretto by Leah Lax based on her memoir relating her journey out of Hasidic Judaism to freedom as a gay woman. The production is directed by Beth Greenberg, renowned for her work at New York City Opera, and conducted by Jackson McKinnon. The cast includes soprano Rachel Policar in the role of Lisa/Young Leah, soprano Emily Blair as the Older Leah, tenor Chris Carr as Levi, mezzo-soprano Heather Jones as Mother, Rachael Braunstein as Mikvah Attendant, and Sydney Anderson as Lover. 

Uncovered is co-commissioned by City Lyric Opera, The New York Opera Society, and Utah State University. The world premiere took place in March 2022 at The Caine Lyric Theatre in Logan, UT.
