These Stratford Theatre masks were recently on display at the Stratford Perth Museum. Both were used in the masked ball scene where Romeo and Juliet first met. The top mask was worn by the actress portraying Juliet, the lower mask was for another party guest. Considering the outcome of the play, the masks struck me as both beautiful and haunting.
