La Belle Helene

Friday 1st November at 7.30pm and Saturday 2nd November at 2.30pm

The wonderful Birmingham Repertory Opera Company are back with us in November with their latest production.

La Belle Helene is a brand new translation of Offenbach’s satirical re-imagining of the events leading up to the Trojan War.

Helene is trapped in a loveless marriage to Menelas, King of Sparta.  On meeting Paris, Prince of Troy, she is torn between following her desires and not wanting to be the puppet of the Gods, while all around her, incompetent and idiotic Kings, bumble about and the corrupt High Priest will do anything for money. Is Helene’s future already decided by fate, or is she free to follow her heart’s desire?”

Join us for a night at the opera on Friday 1st November or for the matinee on Saturday 2nd November.

Tickets: £10 (£8 concessions).  Available from Church Centre Reception.
