    La belle Hélène by Offenbach
    Jim Petts, Opera at Bearwood, Orchestra of Opera at Bearwood, Serena Kay
    Reddam House Theatre (formerly Bearwood College) Wokingham RG41 5BG
    United Kingdom

    Like Orpheus in the Underworld, this rarely performed operetta is an irreverent and hilarious take on Greek mythology and the scurrilous going-on that led to the Trojan war. It's the story of Paris and Helen and her abduction by him disguised as a shepherd. A feast of melody with a zany plot it caused a minor scandal in Paris in the 1860s with its suggestive innuendo and lyrics.

    It's an ideal show for a warm summer's evening providing fun and laughter and no dead bodies for a change as with more serious operas!

    Picnic in the grounds Glynebourne style before the performance

    La belle Hélène
    Jacques Offenbach (1819-1880)
