La Belle Hélène - Jacques Offenbach
'La Belle Hélène' is one of the best-known French operettas. This 19th-century masterpiece became an instant success worldwide. In three acts, Offenbach tells how the Greek queen Helen elopes with the Trojan prince Paris on the eve of the Trojan War. For Offenbach, the Homeric characters were a rewarding subject for a comical parody supported by brilliant and wonderfully refined music. La Belle Hélène has hardly been performed in Belgium. So do not miss out on the opportunity to attend this refreshing operetta!
