Yes. The play opens with the three witches meeting in "a desert place."
The first act of the Shakespearean play 'Macbeth' had two pivotal scenes. One was Scene 3, in which the three witches removed the check in which Macbeth [c. 1014-August 15, 10…57] held his raging ambition. They did so by predicting two glorious career moves. Immediately after their promise, Macbeth saw that their prediction of a powerful, profitable noble title had come true. And that led him to think of their prediction of a royal title as his destiny, his due, and his right.. In Scene 4, Macbeth was honored by King Duncan I [d. August 14, 1040] before an audience of important noblemen. But in the course of that audience, Macbeth saw an obstacle put in the way of his becoming the next King of Scotland. Duncan gave the title of Prince of Cumberland to his elder son, the future King Malcolm III [d. November 13, 1093]. This meant that Malcolm wasn't just an heir apparent. He in fact had become the publicy designated successor to his father.. And so the fourth scene in the first act was significant in its forcing Macbeth to consider courses of action or non-action . Was he going to sit back and hope that the crown would fall into his lap? Or was he going to have to do something to make sure that he got what he felt was owing to him for his brave, noble defense of king and country? If action needed to be taken, did he go by the book? Or did he have to justify any means to the desired end?
The opening scene of "As you like it" is basically a clumsy way of introducing the entire main cast to the audience. It introduces the characters of The dukes, Rosalind, Celia…, Oliver and Orlando. We get to know about Oliver and orlando's character firsthand but we can only guess the basic character if Rosalind, Celia, and the two dukes What you can guess after the opening scene- -> That orlando and oliver are brothers and oliver treats his brother like a servant -> They are sons of Sir rowland de boys -> Oliver wants Orlando to be dead in the wrestling match -> Orlando is much loved by the people and is very Gentlemanly -> Oliver is the opposite of Orlando -> dUKE SENIOR IS BAnished by duke frederick

Shakespeare creates a ere, ominous, dark, evil tone in the opening scene
The significance of the opening scene lies in the fact that the major conflict of the story is expressed in a very raw and emotional statement about the abusive lifestyle that… Celie lives in. She is raped and impregnated only to have her children taken away from her, leaving her alone. The conflict of abuse is hardly resolved much later in the book, leaving Celie to be beaten by Pa and Mr. ___ for the majority of the book.

The introduction of the main character and the main problem is the significance of the opening scene in "Antigone" by Sophocles (495 B.C.E. - 405 B.C.E.). Specifically, th…e dramatic ideal in ancient Greek literature is the solving of a problem that involves the main character and that is presented in one place within a 24-hour period. The opening scene introduces Theban Princess Antigone as the main character. It also informs the audience of the problem of which law to obey when divine and royal wills conflict and contradict each other.
