Paradise Lost in SecondLife - The Follow Up

I promised you a follow up of my last post about Paradise Lost with pictures from the event.

This was the first time I had activated the Restrained Love feature in SecondLife and I am happy I did, although I was a bit hesitant about it. I didn't like the thought of anyone playing around with my avatar without being able to control it, but - as I told myself - I could always turn it off if I got offended.
Paradise Lost is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet John Milton (1608–1674). The first version, published in 1667, consisted of ten books with over ten thousand lines of verse. It is considered by critics to be Milton's major work, and helped solidify his reputation as one of the greatest English poets of his time.
The poem concerns the Biblical story of the Fall of Man: the temptation of Adam and Eve by the fallen angel Satan and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden.

The original story has been adapted to SecondLife by the Basilique Performing Arts Company and set to the music of Mozart's Requiem. The director used some of the amazing attributes available in SecondLife to enhance the show and to include the spectators participation.

Lucifer is cast out of heaven and descends to earth

God the Father creates Adam and then Eve and places them in the Garden of Eden

The fall of Man as Eve consorts with the snake

Original sin, Adam and Eve fornicate

Adam and Eve are cast out from the Garden of Eden by God the Father

Mankind suffers

God the Father orders Abraham to build an arc and then sends the deluge

The Son of God is born

The Son of God on the road to Calvary to redeem the sins of Mankind

This was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, one of my top ten in SecondLife ever!
