Romeo and Juliet Performance Report.

Extracts from this document...


Romeo and Juliet Performance Report The story is about two youngsters, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, from two feuding noble families in Verona. The play opens with an argument between the servants of these two families. The prince stops the fight and decrees that who disturb the peace again will be sentenced to death. A masquerade ball holds in Juliet's residence. They were in the ball because of different reasons. Romeo goes to the ball because he wanted to see Rosaline, the girl which is planned to marry to Romeo arranged by his family. And Juliet goes to the ball because she agrees to talk with Paris during the ball to see if she accepts him as her husband, although she has not yet considered marriage. ...read more.


The next day, Romeo kills Juliet's cousin, Tybalt, because Tybalt has killed Romeo's cousin, Mercutio. The Prince declares Romeo will be banished to Mantua for his crime. Friar arranges to spend his wedding night with Juliet before he went to Mantua. But Capulet pushes Juliet ahead with the plan of marrying Paris, and then Friar concocts a plan to reunite Juliet with Romeo in Mantua. Friar give Juliet a potion that make her appeal to be dead, so Romeo and Friar can retrieve her in her family's tomb. Unfortunately, Romeo does not receive the message about the plan, what he hears is Juliet is dead, so he decides to drink a vial poison kill himself beside Juliet's tomb. ...read more.


I went to the performance on Saturday. Many people were in the auditorium, interested in this classical performance. Unlike the play I seen before, no classical costume in the play, no pretty stage, and only five actors divide twenty-two characters. The actors really done a good job in acting their places in the play, they express the feeling of each character really well. But the largest problem in this problem, is that one actor act as few characters, it makes me mixed up the roles in the play, for example, David Acton act as Lady Capulet and Tybalt, when Tybalt is dead, suppose to be lying on the floor, David stand up and change his role and become Lady Capulet and crying because of Tybalt's death. Although there are problems in the play, it is still an enjoyable performance. ...read more.
