Luis Alejandro Orozco is the latest barihunk to take on the role of Hannah, the transgender protagonist of Laura Kaminsky's groundbreaking opera As/One. Orozco will play "Hannah after" and Ashley Cutright will portray "Hannah Before" in this new production at UrbanArias by director Octavio Cardenas. This will be the first performance in Washington D.C. 

Performances will be on October 3, 4, 9 and 10 and tickets are available online.

Kaminsky was inspired to write As One after reading an article in the New York Times in 2008 about a New Jersey marriage in which one of the parties transitioned from male to female, transforming the couple from straight to gay. The opera is based on the life experience of noted filmmaker Kimberly Reed.

As One provides insights into both the personal and philosophical questions at the core of how personhood is defined, as well as into the compromised civil and humans rights of transgender individuals in the broader societal framework.
