Romeo first sets eyes on Juliet

At the Capulet's party, Romeo, disguised in a masque(mask), first layed eyes on his first true love Juliet.  Later he would come to find out that she was of the Capulet family. But there love for each other didn't stop them they fell in love at first sight and after that they were unseperable.

Act I is the beginning of Romeo and Juliet and we think that William did a great job of opening the play with a fight scene involving Abraham, Balthasar, Benvolio, and Tybalt.That just sets the tone for the rest of the play and it makes people want to keep reading.
