La Belle Héléne

Solís Theater in Montevideo (Uruguay)

Premiered on December 27, 2022

Premiered at the Théâtre des Varietés on December 17, 1864, it parodies the story of Helen's flight with Paris, a fact that would trigger the Trojan War.

La Bella Helena is mainly a work in which the corruption of political power is satirized.

Maintaining the original parodic treatment of the operetta, the idea of the staging tries to "update" its content by creating a plot where those gods, demigods and heroes of ancient mythology are translated on a human scale, embodying an "imaginary" political dynasty.

Deeply corrupt and corruptible, this political caste is in clear decline, which in turn exacerbates the flaws of all the characters.
