Scene 1 - The street
1.

Early in the morning, the street begins to come to life. Romeo is out walking, deep in thought about his unrequited love Rosaline, not noticing other people.

2.

Early risers come out. Strollers still up from the night before make their way home.

3.

A chance meeting by members of the feuding Capulet and Montague households. Taunting quickly develops into a scuffle and then energetic armed combat as more people join the fray.

4.

The Prince appears and the fighting stops. He admonishes the combatants, who put away their weapons and kneel in respect. (Curtain. The theme continues for a change of scene).

Scene 2 - The Capulets' House
5.

The 14-year old Juliet jokes and frolics like a little girl, despite the Nurses attempts to get her to dress. Finally in her ballgown, Juliet sees herself a young woman in the mirror and becomes thoughtful.

6.

The notables of Verona assemble for the ball, meeting and greeting. The invited Mercutio arrives along with gatecrashers Romeo and Benvolio - all are in masks. The host Capulets enter with due pomp and ceremony.

7.

The dancing begins. The pace is liesurely, in keeping with some of the creaking bones in action. Juliet dances indifferently with Paris, while Romeo looks on admiringly.

8.

The three "masketeers" having fun. Tybalt recognizes Romeo and is angry, but Capulet calms him down and friends lead him away.

9.

The dancing continues, as does Romeo's ogling. Juliet is playful, the two are together briefly, then Juliet runs off. Juliet returns to the empty hall looking for something. Romeo conveniently re-appears, and the love dance begins.
