Irene, Empress of Byzantium, was one of the most dazzling ruler figures of the early Middle Ages. With clever intrigues, diplomatic skills, intelligent intrigues and an unerring sense of power, she remained on the Byzantine throne for decades. Dark legends have grown up around the legendary empress: She is said to have killed her husband and blinded her son.


Origen's stage play by Giovanni Netzer searches for the person behind the myth, questions the systems of power and tells the story of a remarkable woman in the upheaval of the times.
