Ticket to Romeo and Juliet Ballet
(Part B of Bronze Award)
It was very interesting to watch Romeo and Juliet as a ballet because I would never have imagined it. It was full of… Prancing. It was fun, I liked all the death scenes but my favourite character to watch would have been Tybalt because he was always angry and dramatic. I surprised me when they kissed, I didn’t think they would kiss, I thought because they were dancing they wouldn’t have to kiss, so I learnt that in ballet you still need to act. I was very sad when they died at the end but in all I enjoyed it. I prefer the play compared to the ballet because you don’t hear any of Shakespeare quotes or writings which is one of my favourite things about Shakespeare’s plays.

I have been studying Romeo and Juliet for English and actually it’s not a bad play. It has a lot of quotes and monologues which are fascinating; and the plot is heart breaking. It’s sad that it wasn’t his originally. While I was learning about it, we learnt about sonnets and I decided to write one.
Your eyes sparkle more than the stars at night,
They shimmer more than moonlight on a stream,
They are like the sun they shine much too bright,
If I stare for too long my eyes will scream,
I don’t mind the pain for into your eye,
I see the only light in this darkness,
Whenever you leave my heart starts to soft cry,
Because crying too hard makes me heartless,
But if you must fly away and leave me,
Then I will wait in this abyss of suffering,
Crying until my desire leave me be,
I will be above this hell gently fluttering,
And from the thought of you I will be free,
And from this terrible place I will flee.
I got an extra mark for this, I’m quite glad I took the time to do it. 🙂
