Les Troyens

Clocking in at nearly five hours, this operatic adaptation of Virgil's poem Aeneid is every bit as epic as the Greek legends it's inspired by. Rarely performed because of its expansive, five-act structure, Les Troyens begins with the familiar tale of the Trojan Horse and expands upon the heroes and tragedies of the Trojan War. Performed in French with projected English subtitles, this lengthy opera is accompanied by two intermissions.
