The rock opera, “Anna and Vladimir: The Love That ROCKED The World,” is based on the history of Russia and Greece, two ancient cultures represented by the relationship between St. Vladimir of Rus and Anna Porphyrogenita of Byzantium, who fell in love after overcoming personal struggles and fears. The Rock Opera incorporates rock and roll, dance, and theatrics to entertain and educate people on a fascinating era of history (with lessons for today).
*Based off Porphyra's albums "Faith, Struggle, Victory" and the upcoming album "The Starmaker's Prophecy."
*Porphyra’s album “Faith, Struggle,Victory” has won best ROCK ALBUM 2016 for The Akademia Music Awards!!!
*A UNESCO awarded band and production.

This presentation is a collaboration between the Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce and the Porphyra Band. For you history buffs, the name Porphyra “Πορφύρα” means the Purple or Porphyry Chamber; a pavilion of the Great Palace of Constantinople where no child born anywhere else could legitimately be called Porphyrogénnētos (born in the purple)-the birthright of all Emperors and Empresses of Constantinople. This was the most “metal” place in the kingdom!
