Romeo & Juliet: Formerly and Nowadays

My project presents the famous history of Romeo and Juliet in two shots: classic and contemporary. The old one shows a balcony scene from Shakespeare's tragedy. Juliet's house is equipped with a furnished bedroom and a living room. The contemporary shot shows a meeting of today's teenagers. In the house of "contemporary" Juliet you can find a kitchen and a bedroom with a dressing table.

I built this project because I want it to breathe some freshness into an iconic story. It is worth looking at it from the original perspective.

I think this idea could be a good LEGO set as people unfamiliar with Romeo and Juliet's history have a chance to get interested in it, while fans of shakespearean story can recreate scenes from the drama as well as create their own stories.
