Famous Shakespeare Scenes (Abridged):

  

Scene 1:

  

ALL:

  

All the world’s a stage,

And all the men and women in it merely players.
 

  
Todo mundo es una escena,

Y todos los hombres y mujeres son jugadores. 

  

They have their exits and their entrances;

And one man in his time plays many parts.
 

  

Tienen sus salidas y sus entradas;

  

Y un hombre en su tiempo juega muchas partes.

  

  

Scene 2:

  

(WITCHES enter.)

     

  WITCHES (Together):

  

Double, Double, Toil and Trouble,

Fire Burn, and Cauldron Bubble,

Fair is Foul, and Foul is Fair,

Hover Through the Filthy Air.
 

  

  

FIRST WITCH:

  

By the pricking of my thumbs,

Something wicked this way comes!
 

  

    

THIRD WITCH:

    

Un tambor, un tambor!
   
Macbeth que viene!

    

(Macbeth Comes In.)

  

    

ALL WITCHES:

  

All Hail Macbeth!  

  

    

MACBETH:

  

Witches! What is my fortune?  

  

   

WITCHES:

  

You will be thane.

You will be king.

You will overrule everything!
 

  

    

SECOND WITCH:

  

But be careful, Macbeth.  

  

  

THIRD WITCH:

  

Prepararse para los trucos en el viaje.

  

(Witches laugh and run away.)

    

     

(MacDuff enters.)

    

MACDUFF:

  

Vuelvete, perro del infierno, vuelvete!

   

   

MACBETH:

   

Ha-ha, you cannot defeat me!

No man of woman born shall harm Macbeth!
 

  

  

MACDUFF:

  

En garde!  

  

(They fight, Macbeth loses offstage.)

  

  

(MACDUFF ENTERS.)

   

   

MACDUFF:

  

The day is done, the bloody dog is dead!  

    

   

   

   

ROMEO AND JULIET:

   

JULIET:

  

O Romeo, Romeo, porque eres Romeo?

   

Deny thy father and refuse thy name.

Or if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love.
 

   

Y no sere un Capulet nunca mas, porque mi nombre es mi enemigo.

  

  

ROMEO:

   

But soft! What light through yonder window breaks?  

   

Es el este, y Julieta es el sol.

   

Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,

Call me your love, and I’ll be new baptized.
 

   

   

ALL BOYS:

   

Henceforth, I never will be Romeo.  

   

   

BENVOLIO:

   

I pray thee, good Mercutio, let’s retire.

The day is hot, the Capulets around,

If we meet, we shall not escape a brawl.
 

   

   

MERCUTIO:

   

There’s no need to worry.  

   

   

TYBALT:

   

Indeed, there is. Fight me Montagues, or escape as cowards. En garde!  

   

   

ROMEO:

   

Tybalt, do not fight my family, as I love thee like family!  

   

(A fight ensues, MERCUTIO FALLS.)

   

   

BENVOLIO:

   

Are you alright?  

   

   

MERCUTIO:

   

‘Tis nothing but a scratch!  

   

(To the audience:)

   

O! They have made worm’s meat of me.

A plague on both your houses!
 

  

  

ALL:

   

A plague on both your houses!!  

   

(MERCUTIO dies.)

   

   

   

Scene 3:

   

HAMLET, PRINCE OF DENMARK (Choral Arrangement):

   

HAMLET:

   

To be, or not to be,

That is the question:

Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,

Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,

And by opposing, end them.

End them.

End them.

To die, to sleep,

To sleep, perchance to dream.

I am ended.

Good night sweet prince, parting is such sweet sorrow.
 

   

Todo es silencio.

   

(Everyone Dies.)

   

THE END.
