Helen - 1932 - West End

Based on the opera La Belle Hélène by Offenbach

In this fresh take on the Greek tragedy, Helen of Troy never actually makes it to Troy, but lands in an Egyptian hotel room waiting for her love, Menelaus, to find her. Alone in her room, she receives visits from Io and Athena who inform Helen of the tragedy that her image has had on the world.
