Theme for Zeffirelli's "Romeo and Juliet" (A Time for Us) - 3-D capable....

Romeo happens to be passing below the balcony of Juliet at an auspicious moment; the auspicion of which we would know presently, for despite fortuition in it's greatest bloom, the fiercest wind of impending doom awaits the pair as they chance to meet and here we see played out in humble term 'twixt notch en-carved in wry bard's plum, the truth unfolds for all to see what plagues us yet in You-Tube's set: mediocrity, thy name is gossip played out in Mercutian fiddle-stick of doves trooping with crows.  For wherefore art thou "Romeo".  A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.  Disown your past as princes have thus banished you and take with thee no-longer Capulet to where thy banishment new life begins, or poisoned daggers pay thy debt.  And persons marred with wry regret.

A song by Nino Rota (Giovanni Rota Rinaldi), the track for Zeffirelli's "Romeo and Juliet" (by Shakespeare).  This guy cranked out a bunch of deep music. Another great Italian composer; had music in his genes -- it ran in the family. Maybe I do, too, I'm part Italian: Ramolino, tracing back as far as Napoleons mom.  But Nino was also a child prodigy.  He later  produced a bunch of operas, symphonic works and profound movie scores such as the one for Coppola's "Godfather II".

For the visual aspect of the clip, I have assembled a few works of mine, both fine art and digitized photography.  All the work was photographed when I knew little of digital cameras; I just grabbed one and hit the ground running.  So the detail and quality is somewhat lacking.  However, it's adequate and it helps depict some aspects of this subject.
