Byzantine Choral Project
Librettist/co-founder
New York, USA
I'm a playwright and librettist and co-founder of the Byzantine Choral Project, which makes epic theatre with diverse voices. We are currently developing ICONS/IDOLS, a tetralogy of choral plays about Byzantine Empresses and the pursuit of female political power. Our composer Grace Oberhofer received a 2017 Opera America Discovery Grant to work on the project and so far we have presented work in progress at The Tank, New Georges and Opera America. The first play in the cycle was the opening show at Ice Factory 2016 at the New Ohio Theatre in New York and we will be presenting arias from the whole tetralogy at Feinstein's/54 Below in November 2018. You can find out more about my writing at www.helenbanner.com -- talk to me about new work, diverse casting and hybrid opera/theatre/music collaborations!
