Judgment Of Paris, The
Inspired by the Greek myth of The Judgment of Paris, in which the first ever beauty contest occurred, and informed by the stage directions of the Baroque Opera The Judgment of Paris (by John Weaver), Company XIV tells an epic story of lust, love, and tragedy, illustrating the events that lead to Paris's fateful decision to award aphrodite the golden apple in exchange for Helen of Troy. This decision launched the Trojan War, resulting in years of blood shed and catastrophe. The Judgment of Paris explores archetypes prevalent in Greek literature, tracing them through history, equating Helen of Troy (the first blonde bombshell) to other blondes throughout time. . .Marilyn, Marlene, Brigitte Bardot, etc. Humorous interludes, supplied by Offenbach's comic opera La Belle Helene, tantalize throughout the evening. Equal parts classical, contemporary, historical, and pop art, The Judgment of Paris defies easy categorization.
