Offenbach’s La Belle Hélène

When: Sat., Oct. 27

When Paris fell for Helen of Troy, it was only a matter of time until Helen's hubby went to war to get her back—and really, it was only a matter of time until someone made an opera spoofing the whole thing, too, after centuries of it all being taken so seriously. Here, as part of the 2018 FrancoFest celebrations, we see a fully staged production of Offenbach's comedic, operatic retelling of the events leading up to the Trojan War —complete with the original French libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy.

Price: $35
