La Belle Hélène, 1980, Programme Cover

La Belle Hélène, is an opera in three acts, with music by Jacques Offenbach and words by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy. The piece parodies the story of Helen's elopement with Paris, which set off the Trojan War. This print is taken from the programme cover of ENO's 1980 performances.
