Storyboard Text

  • In Belmont, Portia (Right) and Nerissa (left) discuss the rules about the casket test the suitors have to take if they want to marry Portia
  • Right, and also, they must never marry a woman
  • Remember, if the suitor doesn't choose the right casket, he must leave immediately and he can't tell other suitors what casket he chose
  • Portia and Nerissa are talking about the recent suitors who all left after hearing the rules
  • And the German is little better than a beast
  • These suitors are so vile, for instance, the Neapolitan Prince only talks about his horse and the Baron of England is dumb
  • The Prince of Morocco comes and takes the casket test where he needs to choose one casket, either gold(right), silver(center) or lead(left) and if he chooses the casket with Portia's picture in it, Portia will be his wife
  • So, if I choose the casket with your picture in it, I get to have you as my wife? Then I choose gold
  • Sorry, you chose incorrectly
  • The Prince of Arragon comes to Belmont to take the casket test in hopes of having Portia as his wife
  • i think that i will choose silver
  • you chose incorrectly. now please leave my house
  • Bassanio, whom Portia is in live with, comes to take the casket test and even though Portia wants to help Bassanio, she can't
  • I choose the lead casket
  • Yay! You chose the right casket, and i will be your wife. this is my ring and if you ever lose it, i will assume that you don't love me
  • Bassanio and Portia are married and live happily
  • im so happy that we are married
  • me too
