An Original Musical set in the 6th Century Byzantine Empire
Book, Music & Lyrics by Kit Goldstein Grant

When an Ostrogoth "barbarian" commander comes to parlay for peace with the Byzantine court, cultures clash as the old Roman reign faces a new world.

Byzantium is a colorful story of politics and love, centering around the Emperor Justinian and Empress Theodora as they negotiate a double-marriage alliance with their Gothic enemies, and end up promoting an unlikely love affair.
