 About this production, described here:

"Romeo and Juliet was written early in the career of playwright William Shakespeare about two young "star-cross'd lovers. It was among Shakespeare's most popular plays during his lifetime and one of his most frequently performed plays.

Romeo and Juliet has been adapted numerous times for stage, film, ballet and opera.
In Silken Ballet Romeo and Juliet will be shown as a timeless love story, where only the discovery of love, excitment and passion will be focused.
Oceanid Aeon and Sankar Mornington, the youngest ballet dancers in our company will bring to Second Life the most famous love in history.

One aspect of particular interest in this new Silken Ballet production is the music;
the original Prokofiev partiture will be mixed with different rythms from the famous portuguese group Madredeus in a unusual electronic interpretation."
