The Crucible: Romeo & Juliet (A Fire Ballet)

This is a really cool event conducted by The Crucible, which is an organization in Oakland. Check out the two minute promo here.

Here's some more info from the website:

In the dazzling tradition of The Crucible's Fire Operas, this first-ever Fire Ballet is a theatrical spectacle that fuses ballet, classical music, aerial performance, and the fire and industrial arts into a compelling modernized rendition of Shakespeare's tragic tale. Choreographer Corinne Blum, formerly of the San Francisco Ballet, has been recognized as one of the West Coast’s most exciting, young choreographers. Dazzling fight scenes—expect real fire when tempers flare!
