I have never been a big fan of Offenbach - so when a friend dragged me along to see La Belle Hélène, I thought why not!
What was enjoyable? Dame Felicity Lott - as always, though I have never seen her doing a role with such a big speaking part - and it was thoroughly enjoyable. The trashy seaside stage set also worked very well with the story - kind of not taking anything too seriously.
What was not enjoyable? Hmm, lack of leg room.
