2 Hello everyone! We are very pleased to announce our 2016 productions: THE SNOW QUEEN TROY and DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE v We would like to present these three well-known stories as we believe that students must always be exposed to the classics which are essential for their general knowledge and cultural background. As educators we have the responsibility of showing new generations the great value these stories have. v The Company s version: Paris is a prince whose parents left him in the mountains immediately after his birth because the Gods had predicted that he would bring destruction to the city of Troy. He grew up as a shepherd and one day, Zeus selected him to be the judge at a beauty contest among the goddesses Hera, Athene and Aphrodite. He had to decide who the most beautiful goddess was and he chose Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Aphrodite promised him that he would marry the most beautiful girl in Greece. Many years later, he returned home and finally accepted to become prince of Troy. As a prince, he travelled to Sparta where he met Helen, the queen of Sparta, and the most beautiful girl in Greece. They immediately fell in love and Paris took her away to Troy. Menelaus, King of Sparta and Helen s husband, declared war to Troy for Paris taking Helen away from him. Athene, the goddess of wisdom and war, wanted revenge for not being selected in the contest and so decided to help Menelaus in the war against Troy. But Troy s army, guided by Hector, Paris brother, was the most powerful army and had never been defeated. Menelaus needed Achilles to help him win the war, but Achilles didn t want to fight this war. So, what happened? Did Achilles help Menelaus? What did the goddess Athene do to take Achilles to the battlefield? Did Sparta beat Troy and get Helen back? What plan did Athene come up with to get into the walls of Troy? What was the wooden horse? Don t miss this fabulous Greek myth and learn more about the famous war of Troy. K 2 k

3 K TEACHER S GUIDE k K MYTHOLOGICAL TROY: Troy is the setting for Homer s Iliad in which he recounts the final year of the Trojan War sometime in the 13th century BCE. The war was in fact a ten-year siege of the city by a coalition of Greek forces led by King Agamemnon of Mycenae. The purpose of the expedition was to reclaim Helen, wife of Menelaus, king of Argos and brother of Agamemnon. Helen was abducted by the Trojan prince Paris and taken as his prize for choosing Aphrodite as the most beautiful goddess in a competition with Athena and Hera. The Trojan War is also told in other sources such as the Epic Cycle poems (of which only fragments survive) and is also briefly mentioned in Homer s Odyssey. Troy and the Trojan War later became a staple myth of Classical Greek and Roman literature. Homer describes Troy as wellfounded, strong-built and well-walled ; there are also several references to fine battlements, towers and high and steep walls. The walls must have been unusually strong in order to withstand a ten-year siege and in fact, Troy fell through the trickery of the Trojan horse ruse rather than any defensive failing. Indeed, in Greek mythology the walls were so impressive that they were said to have been built by Poseidon and Apollo. K THE PLOT Paris is a prince who was left in the mountains by his parents when he was born because the Gods predicted that he would bring destruction to his city of Troy. He grew up as a shepherd and one day, the God Zeus picked him to be the judge at a beauty contest between the goddesses Hera, Athene and Aphrodite. He had to decide who the most beautiful goddess was and he chose Aphrodite, the goddess of love. Aphrodite promised him that he would marry the most beautiful girl in Greece. Many years later, he returned home and finally accepted to become prince of Troy. As a prince, he travelled to Sparta where he met Helen, the queen of Sparta, and the most beautiful girl in Greece. They immediately fell in love and Paris took her away to Troy. Menelaus, King of Sparta and Helen s husband, declared war to Troy for Paris taking Helen away from him. Athene, the goddess of wisdom and war, wanted revenge for not being selected in the contest and so decides to help Menelaus in the war against Troy. But Troy s army, guided by Hector, Paris s brother, was the most powerful army and was never defeated. Menelaus needed Achilles to help him win the war, but Achilles didn t want to fight this war. So Athene conceived a plan to put Achilles on battle. She sent Patroclus, Achilles beloved cousin and an inexperienced warrior, to fight Hector and, as a result, Patroclus dies. In a blind rage, Achilles joins Menelaus and pledge revenge, but still they had to come up with a plan to enter Troy s gates. Athene suggests they can simulate surrender and build a big wooden horse as a gift to the Gods. The Trojans, excited because they have won the war, let the horse in. But inside the hollow body Achilles and Menelaus were hidden and now ready to attack the city. Achilles encounters Hector in the battlefield and after a sword fight Hector is killed. Paris, although he is not skilled with weapons, manages to kill Achilles stabbing him in his heel. Finally, Menelaus kills Paris and Sparta beats Troy. K 3 k

After that, show your picture to a partner and describe what is happening. * * * Long, long ago, the Golden Race of men appeared on Earth. Because there were no women, the Golden Race died out, and Zeus replaced them with the Silver Race. These men and women fought often and ignored the gods, so Zeus sent them to the underworld. Now, Prometheus, a Titan, tried to create people to live on Earth. He decided to make people who resembled gods so mortals and immortals could better understand each other. The people he made were called the Bronze Race. Prometheus often tried to help the mortals he had created. When he saw them shivering in the cold and eating raw meat, he decided to give them fire. With Athena s help, Prometheus stole fire from Zeus palace and taught the mortals how to use it. Suddenly, people could cook, keep warm, and even forge metal tools. Zeus was angry at what Prometheus has done, and he punished the mortals, sending a nine-day flood to drown them all. However, Deucalion and his wife, Pyrrha, survived and thanked Zeus for his protection. When he saw this, Zeus was pleased that two humans had survived. He sent the Titaness, Themis, to Earth. Follow me she instructed the humans, and drop rocks behind you as you walk. Where Decaulion dropped rocks, men appeared. Where Pyrrha dropped rocks, women appeared. Earth again filled with humans. These were the people of the Age of Heroes, which lasted until the Trojan War. K 17 k

HELEN: I can see that! But what on earth is it doing here? PARIS: No one knows. (Hector enters) HECTOR: It was there at first light, so it must have arrived during the night. And that s not all, the Greeks have gone. Vanished. Completely disappeared. HELEN: Are you sure? HECTOR: I went down to the shore. The camps have been dismantled and the ships are gone. PARIS: That s very strange. HECTOR: I caught a deserter from the Greek s army. A boy. He said the Greeks have surrendered and sailed home. HELEN: But that doesn t explain what the horse is doing here. HECTOR: It s supposed to be a gift for Athene. The boy also said that if the horse enters the city gates, Athene will protect Troy from all enemies. PARIS: Maybe it s a sign that things are going to get better. What are we going to do, Hector? HECTOR: Well, it won t do us any harm. In fact, it could really help us. HELEN: I m not sure. Why should we believe a greek boy s word? I think it s a trap. PARIS: That s nonesense. HECTOR: The boy had an honest look. HELEN: Don t be silly. Do you trust a greek boy just because someone has an honest look? This can be dangerous. HECTOR: Dangerous? Why? K 19 k
