This is a marvellous and captivating picture of Shakespeare watching one of the first performances of his early romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, sometime in 1592; he looks round at the audience for their reactions, enjoying their emotional response to what we can see is now the most famous scene in the entire play – the Balcony Scene – but which then would have been utterly and breathtakingly original.
