Directing the Balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet

Extracts from this document...


Balcony Scene Essay The balcony scene is known as one of the finest and most famous scenes in the whole of drama. Directing and producing this scene is a difficult task. Constructing a hard scene is a challenge which every director intends to compete in. To successfully complete this, you will need to set up a scene of modern or traditional characters. Key characters are those who create major effect even if they have to take up a minor side role. There are many people such as guards, watchmen and even the nurse who is always present. I believe that the balcony scene is a turning point in the play as the emotions of Romeo come pouring out lying before Juliet. ...read more.


"Call me but love, and I'll be new baptised. Henceforth I'll never be Romeo." This line tells us that Romeo has deeply sunk in Juliet's love that he is ready to change his characteristics and personality for her. Romeo's love is unlimited, it had no boundaries, it penalises every rule against them, and improves every rule for them.

Their emotions and aspects are exceptionally alike. It's like their pair had come prepared directly from heaven. They carry huge similarities between them and their love. This moment of romance and concern should be treasured in their hearts forever. This brings them together and makes them realise love can be difficult but if you hold on, your bond is even stronger. My conclusion is that constructing this scene is difficult but with a little bit of effort and pain the mission can be accomplished. A strong and determined director can construct a capable and fine scene for others to enjoy. My final saying is that this scene is the heart of the play and if you construct this scene well, then consider yourself as a fantastic director. ...read more.
