Billy Chrissochos and Porphyra featured in the Queens Gazette: http://www.qgazette.com/news/2016-03-02/Features/Billy_Chrissochos.html
Set in the year 988AD, the Heroic Age of Basil II Emperor of Byzantium, the story chronicles Princess Anna Porphyrogenita and her marriage to Grand Prince Vladimir of the Kievan Rus. An incredible story of Love, War and Peace brought to life through Hard Rock and Greek Folk music, dancing, and a twelve piece rock orchestra.
Proudly brought to you by Porphyra Corp and The Hellenic American Center Center for the Arts. We made history last May with our Rock Opera being the first ever to successfully debut at Carnegie Hall. The current show will be the concert version of Porphyra the Musical.
