La Belle Hélène is Offenbach’s most famous operetta. Performed around the world since its creation in 1864, this parody of Greco-Roman Antiquity (like Orpheus in the Underworld in 1855) takes a humorous, satirical and not uncritical look at the reign of Napoleon III. For this new production, the Théâtre du Châtelet has reunited Pierrick Sorin and Giorgio Barberio Corsetti, whose exuberant “The Touchstone” has entered the annals of history.
