Juliet, a Capulet is the star-crossed lover of Romeo.


Romeo once said to her;

But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks?
It is east, Juliet is the sun!

He wished for her touch on his cheek;

See! How she leans her cheek upon her hand

O! that I were a glove upon that hand,
That I might touch that cheek.

Hearing his voice she said;

O Romeo, Romeo! wherefore art though Romeo?
Deny thy father, and refuse thy name;
Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love,
And I'll no longer be a Capulet.
What is in a name? That which we call a rose
by any other name would smell as sweet.
This bud of love, by summer's ripening breath,
May prove beauteous flower when next we meet.

Juliet hated parting that she said;

Good night, good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow,

That I shall say good night till it be morrow. .[1]

Behind the scenesEdit
