The show brings the audience into the modern, war-torn metropolis of Verona as the newly minted Chancellor Paris takes control and promises to return the city to its traditional roots and destroy the progressive resistance. This new musical is an intricate weaving of Benatar's and Giraldo's deeply emotional rock anthems and new songs, exploring the question - what does it take to regain a world where peace is possible?
