Helen In Egypt

Long after her death, H.D. has continued to inspire artists—and not just poets and novelists. Jonathan Elkus, former Lehigh professor and Director of Bands, transformed H.D.’s Helen in Egypt into an “opera seria in one act.” Elkus’s Helen in Egypt was brought to life by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s School of Fine Arts Opera Theatre. The opera was performed on three nights (November 13-15, 1970).
