Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBMDGE HERALD Thursday, July 19, 1973 Helen of Troy arrives as Spartans eat pizza By JAMES NELSON OTTAWA (CP) Helen of Troy arrived on the beach on the back of a centaur while the Spartans were eating pizzas, cooling themselves with soda pop, and liberally coating them- selves with suntan oil before she sailed away to Troy with her new-found love, Paris. That, at least, Is the inter- pretation put on the tale of the cause of the Trojan War, about 1200 BC, by Jacques Offenbach more than 100 years ago, aided and abetted by conductor Pierre Hetu and director Paul Buissoneau in the second of this summer's National Arts Centre opera productions. Offenbach's story is out- landish, as is his retelling of the legend of Orpheus in the Under- world, and the new production starring Canadians Colette Boky and Pierre Duval as Here are the ANSWERS for your NEWS QUIZ PART 1: 1-b; 2-c; 3-Britain; 4-lnternational Telephone and Telegraph; 5-a PART 2: 1-d; 2-e; 3-a; 4-c; 5-b PART III: T-b; 2-d; 3-a; 4-c; 5-e PICTURE QUIZ: Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko LABOR CLUB CORNER 2nd AVE. and 13th ST.

MEMBERS and GUESTS ONLY! Helen and Paris makes it thor- oughly outlandish. But the open- ing night audience lapped it up, giving the opera rousing ap- plause and frequent chuckles at the up-tempo puckishness. It took cracks at les Anglais, the Olympics, this legislative capital, Mayor Jean Drapeau of Montreal, and just about any- thing else that can provoke a jibe in French Canada today. Hetu, now resident conductor of the-Edmonton Symphony, led the arts centre orchestra iu the scintillating score, mostly made up of waltz songs that have long been popular since the opera's first production in 1864. It is the first time the arts centre has departed from the Mozart repe- toire in its three years of sum- mer opera festival productions. Buissoneau, founder in 1965 of Montreal's Theatre de Quat'Sous, employed just about every comic device this side of plain slapstick. The result is something between grand opera and the Follies Bergeres. CARRIED AWAY Imagine Helen's husband, Menelaus, sung by Claude Le- tourneau, sailing off on the bounding main in a tiny craft borne on the shoulders of Spar- tan warriors. And Paris comes hi disguise to atxluct her in a golden sailing ship with the most dazzling voluptuous figure ship that opens its brow like a Second World War landing craft to take Helen on board. The whole cast at times breaks into a. gogo gyrations, and the Kings of Pbtiotide, Salamin and Locrians go into a soft-shoe routine. Claude Corbeil sang a rob- ustly fussy Catenas, the high priest Jupiter, and Napoleon Bisson was Agamemnon, the King of Kings. Mona Kelly, wife of orchestra founder-conductor Mario Bernardi, sang Oreste, Agamemnon's son, and played the part of the young man to a T- Lorraine Richard had the mime role of the little god Pan, seeing everyone was in his proper place for the unfolding of the legend. Other parts were taken by Benoit Marleau, Andre Montmorency, Andre Lortie and Lucille Dansereau. The costumes and stage props were lavish, and there seemed to be so much activity back- stage with such things as cen- taurs, cabanas and boudoirs, that many of the entrances and exits were from die front of the house. One mark of an audience- winning success is how quickly the bars and lobbies clear as soon as the lights are flicked at intermission. For this produc- tion, there was almost a stam- pede back to then- seats by the first-night audience. Week-long feature planned KINGSTON, Ont. (CP) A week-long tercentenary celebra- tion, featured by an unprece- dented 300-gun salute, win be staged by the Canadian Armed Forces in Kingston this sum- mer, U.-CoL W. A.

Thousands line Klondike route EDMONTON (CP) Grey skies and the threat of rain failed to deter a crowd esti- mated by police at from lining downtown streets for the annual Klondike Days parade which paid tribute to the 100th anniversary of the RCMP. Skies began to clear soon after the parade began. The RCMP was saluted by Silence is golden for Miss Jones LONDON A mid- dle-aged man said today he had paid blonde model Janie Jones more than about 000) to prevent her revealing that she had supplied Mm with prostitutes. He told a court that Miss Jones, 34, had threatened that if he did not hand over cash 'my name would be splashed across the front pages of every Sunday newspaper in the world." The of all wit- nesses have been kept secret- was given an assortment of charges, including bribery of radio and television producers and disk-jockeys to play certain records. Miss Jones's pretty niece told the court that her aunt led her into prostitution at the age of 17. T'But she never forced me into doing anything." The girl, now 25, was identi- fied only as Miss L. many of the floats, including several that featured birthday cakes celebrating the force's centennial. RCMP commission- er W. L. Bjggitt 'was parade marshal as the bands, floats and crowds stepped off to cover the 31-block route. It was esti- mated the parade took 2% hours to complete. Prominent among the digni- taries was 95-year-old Fred Bard of Edmonton, who started his career with the force when it was known as the North West Mounted Police. Spectators were lined up to 10 deep along sections of the parade route and office workers took advantage of their prime location on Jasper Avenue to take a peak through their win- dows. Canadian Forces Base Ed- monton used the traditional Klondike theme for its float and included gold-mining eqipment used by early prospectors to ex- tract gold from rock. The Ed- monton Power float took its "hat off" to the RCMP with a float depicting the change in headgear of the force during the years.

Dont forget nor Annual Goff Tournament July 2ft and 29 Fox television biggie now writer and recluse LOS ANGELES (AP) A decade ago when he played the Intrepid skipper of the Tiki on television's Adventures in Para- dise, Gardner McKay received more fan mail than any other 20th Century Fox actor. Since then, McKay, 39, has lived as a recluse in the Sahara Desert and the jungles of Vene- zuela. Today he is finally doing what he's always wanted to do: write plays. McKay is putting the finishing touches on Me, a play he wrote and directed for television's Public Broadcasting System. The play, about a retarded, spastic child and his family, is to be shown next winter. McKay says acting never was his real interest. He retired to desert and jungle to shed the popularity television had given him. "There is such peace in the forest, peace that I have never known anywhere else, such pur- McKay says. "It seems an odd tiling to do, but I suppose in a very quiet way I was erasing my career." In the desert, McKay was an adventurer and rode with the Egyptian camel corps. By the time he got to the South Ameri- can jungle, he was writing. First, it was How to Eat a Pi- ranha Before It Eats You, for Sports Illustrated. But'soon he was Bailing manuscripts to California. Five years ago, he returned to Los Angeles. Since then, be has directed'several of his plays in local workshop theatres. MOSCOW (AP) Jack Va- lenti, president of the U.S. Mo- tion Picture Association, says the "political climate is sa- lubrious enough" to promote joint U.S.-Soviet movie produc- tions.

Valenti is the bead of the American delegation to the Moscow Film Festival. He the Soviets are push- ing for co-productions. MADRID (AP) Samuel Bronston, who produced the films El Cid and King of Kings, has been indicted for fraud, says a Madrid court order.
