This storyboard does not have a description.
Instead of leaving the party with Benvolio and Mercutio, Romeo jumps the wall into the Capulet garden to try to find Juliet.
Act 2 Scene 1
Benvolio and Mercutio call after him, and Mercutio laughingly mocks Romeo's passion and love for Rosaline. Finally, they give up and leave.
Just then, Romeo sees Juliet walk out onto a balcony. In a whisper he compares her to the sun, and hides beneath her balcony.
Juliet speaks: she asks why Romeo must be Romeo. She asks him to forswear his name, to give up being a Montague, then offers to give up being a Capulet if Romeo will love her.
Romeo emerges from his hiding place, startling Juliet. She says that if Romeo is noticed he'll be killed, but Romeo responds that he would rather die than live without her love.
As the Nurse calls from Juliet's room, Juliet hurriedly asks Romeo, if his "love be honorable", to send her word tomorrow whether he will marry her. He tells her to send the Nurse to him at nine and exchanged more hurried words of love
