Rock the World with Historic Romance, Heavy Metal & Belly Dancing!

Porphyra rock opera logo1

The Greater Flushing Chamber of Commerce invites you to experience the amazing and highly-original rock opera – “Anna and Vladimir: The Love That ROCKED The World,” in three shows on Friday, June 2 and Saturday, June 3, at historic Flushing Town Hall. Experience ancient history through modern music, dance, and romance!
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 opera incorporates rock and roll, dance, and theatrics to entertain and educate people on a fascinating era of history (with lessons for today).
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! For more information, visit:
