This was a proposal for the evocation of a space with noble characteristics that existed in Lisbon for only six months — The Royal Opera House — which stood on its site only from April 1755 to November of the same year, being utterly destroyed on the Lisbon Earthquake of 1755. Second Life enabled to "rebuild" something that doesn't exist any more.
