When the goddess Venus promises Paris the love of Helen, the ravishing queen of Sparta, he shows little consideration for the fact that she is already married to King Menelas. This famous comic opera in three acts describes the zany strategies used by Paris to win Helen over, as well as Helen’s timid attempts at resisting the seductive prince’s advances. Directed by Alain Gauthier and featuring a cast made up of the best young opera talent in the country, La belle Hélène is full of humour, plot twists, and wit.
