Subject:        MODD Presentation -- Romeo and Juliet

MODD (Music, Opera, Drama, Dance) presents a performance of Romeo and
Juliet, in which Shakespeare's text, Bernstein's musical (West Side
Story), the operas of Bellini and Gounod, Prokofiev's Ballet, and
Tchiakovsky's orchestral music are combined to present a 90-minute
version of Romeo and Juliet.  The objective is to show young people that
all art forms can tell a story.  The production combines the talents of
Ballet Jorgen, the Canadian Opera Company, the Stratford Festival of
Canada and the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and is directed by Richard
Rose, Artistic Director of the Necessary Angel Theatre Company.
