Rent La Belle Helene on DVD

La Belle Helene

2004 Rated NR 2hr 6m

Offenbach's light-hearted three-act opera puts a twist on Homer's ancient story of "the face that launched a thousand ships" -- Helen of Troy. The opera satirizes the social mores (obsession with sex and lack of obsession with morality) of the Parisian upper classes during the Second Empire. This production stars Felicity Lott, Francoise Le Roux, Michel Senechal and Yann Beuron.
