Right away we are introduced to a fight between some young men of the two families. There is nothing like a market clearing brawl to get things going!

The rest of the act builds up the backstory and suspense around the two star crossed lovers. Juliet is expected to marry Paris. At the Party she sees Romeo and she falls in love only to find out he is a dreaded Montague.
