Title Character can’t get to grips with basically being Juliet in a different piece and different genre.
Just like her alter ego, she can’t marry her sweetheart for family reasons. Rodolfo, cleverness
notwithstanding, finds his creative solutions culminating in a poisoned chalice, which both of them
drink from. In the operatic tradition, all banal misunderstandings come to light as they depart this
Earth, and the curtain slowly closes.
