La belle Hélène

This comedy of mistaken identities and door slams is filled with Offenbach’s high energy dancing tunes and vocal fireworks. Get ready for rollicking hijinks amongst the Greek gods. Venus plots revenge, as Jupiter tries to rein in his chickens, meanwhile Paris rides to victory with the beautiful Helen (whose face launched a thousand ships).
