Romeo & Juliet - Juliet's Balcony

Project four in my literary classics sets. Probably the definitive scene from William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

"But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun."

Having visited Verona and been to the famous courtyard I felt this was an excellent addition to my Literature based Lego sets. While many people have been bored at school by studying the works of Shakespeare, his writing has stood the test of time and many adaptions of his work have become massively popular with modern audiences.

The set is kept simple, drawing on the real life balcony in Verona, but simplified to match a possible stage set for a production of the play.

The building element could be further expanded, but I felt a simple, stage like feel was better, as the story is character driven they are the focus of this set.

Romeo and Juliet are the essential mini figures for this set, but as there is a Shakespeare mini figure from the Move mini figure series this could also be included and still be relevant.
