Introducing Romeo & Juliet


Romeo & Juliet - Characters


Prologue - [Enter Chorus.]

Two household, both alike in dignity,

In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,

From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,

Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.

From forth the fatal loins of these two foes,

A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life,

Whose misadventure piteous overthrows

Doth with their death bury their parents’ strife.

The fearful passage of their death-marked love,

And continuance of their parent’s rage,

Which, but their children’s end, naught could remove,

Is now the two hours’ traffic of our stage,

The which if you with patient ears attend,

What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

[Exit]

Listen – Use online audio summary


[Enter Chorus.] Lines 1-4

1Two households, both alike in dignity,

2 In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
