An All Souls’ Amateur Operatic Society presentation - La Belle Hélène.
Helen is a bored housewife (her husband a rather boring fool). Paris, the dashing and charming suitor, appears to be the only fun she can seem to find!
Instead of tales of heroism and daring, Offenbach makes fun of the pompous Grecian kings, the easily led maidens and well….almost everybody.
Jokes and general silliness are combined with glorious music to make ‘La Belle Hélène’ – the beautiful Helen – one of the funniest and most joyful musical comedies, too rarely performed.
