From Capulet’s garden Romeo overhears Juliet express her love for him. When he answers her, they acknowledge their love and their desire to be married.


It is the East, and Juliet is the sun.
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon.
Be not her maid since she is envious.


It is my lady. O, it is my love!
O, that she knew she were!


Hey, I am here.
O, speak again, bright angel.
As glorious to this night.


O Romeo, Romeo, why are you Romeo?
Deny your father and refuse your name,
Or, if you wilt not, be but sworn my love,
And no longer be a Capulet.


Shall I hear more?


Yes, but your name that is my enemy.


I take you at your word.
Call me but love, and I’ll be new baptized.
I never will be Romeo.
