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.

1. Troy begins

Let me tell you how the story of Troy begins
I was raised as a shepherd but truly I’m a prince
They said I betrayed my country for love
But the truth is the Gods rule from above
Hey Gods, this is not a game
With a thousand men and ships on the shore
You started the most tragic of wars
Hey Gods, this is not a game
The people of Troy were defeated. Who’s to blame?
They say I’m a traitor and I am to blame
For this ridiculous war I am to blame
Once I met Helen my heart had no choice
War has no sense for love is the cause
Hey Gods, this is not a game
With a thousand men and ships on the shore
You started the most tragic of wars
Hey Gods, this is not a game
The people of Troy were defeated. Who’s to blame?
War! What is it good for!
War! What is it good for!
War! What is it good for!
War! What is it good for!

2. I love you as you love me

PARIS:
If you come with me we’ll never be safe
Men will hunt us and the Gods will take revenge
But I will love you until the end
I will love you till the very end
HELEN:
If I go with you we’ll never have peace
Here in Sparta I’m a wife and a queen
War will come over us if I leave this land
I can’t go I hope you can understand
BOTH:
Love is stronger than war
Love is stronger than us
Love is stronger than everything
We have desired
PARIS:
But now there’s not much we can do
I cannot go back and live without you
Come aboard, let’s get lost in the sea
Cause I know I love you as you love me
HELEN:
Men will die and the war will never cease
But I can’t turn my head and watch you leave
My heart beats hard and strong just for you
Cause you know I love you as you love me
BOTH:
Love is stronger than war
Love is stronger than us
Love is stronger than everything
We have desired
Love is stronger than war
