Available roles:

  • JUSTINIAN: Emperor of the Eastern Roman Empire. A proud man and a shrewd military tactician, focused on retaining leverage in the face of defeat. Struggles with diplomacy.
  • THEODORA: Empress of the Eastern Roman Empire, wife of Justinian. A friend to the Empire’s artisans, and a highly skilled negotiator and diplomat. Loves Justinian, but isn’t afraid to call him out on things. Mentor to Amphion.
  • NARSES: Justinian’s chief advisor, a eunuch. Ambitious, maybe too much so, but is not without compassion.
  • AMPHION: Wildly popular (and talented) official songsmith of Constantinople. Writes and performs music to celebrate and support Justinian’s deeds. Is beginning to question whether her royal appointment is hindering her true potential.
  • BORZUYA: Chief ambassador of the Shah Xusra. A physician and scholar of the Sassanid empire. Kind of a doofus.
  • BOZORGMIR: Assistant to Borzuya. Highly motivated and manipulative, scheming.
  • NASREEN: Daughter of Borzuya. Intelligent and independent-minded, she rejects the life of a court mistress.
  • COURT DANCERS (3-4)
  • ENSEMBLE CAST OF 8-12, who will play very active roles as a ROCK CHOIR! as well as helping to fill out the world of the show as courtiers, spectators, gladiators, royal musicians, and more. Some ensemble members will also be asked to understudy for lead roles.
