REIGN is a contemporary steampunk rock opera with a massive, exhilarating score from Anessa Marie (Finding Beautiful, NYMF) and Will Shishmanian (The Regulars).
After the sudden death of his father, the King, Edward II takes over and brings his lover Gio back to the Royal Palace, despite the objection of Isabella his Queen and their Advisors.
