What is the rising action in the prologue of romeo and Juliet?

The term "rising action" is a term which only has application to a critical device called Freytag's Pyramid, in which it refers to the action in Act 2 of a typical five-act play, and by "typical" I here mean a Shakespearean Tragedy, since the Freytag Pyramid doesn't always fit the histories and comedies. Since the Prologue of Romeo and Juliet is not a five-act play (it is in fact a sonnet), the Freytag Pyramid and therefore the term "rising action" cannot apply to it. You could probably see that coming when you heard it was a prologue, since there is never any action of any kind in a Prologue (if there were, it would be an "Induction", as in The Taming of the Shrew).

Do you mean "prologue?" A prologue is an introduction to a a book that is not a part of the book proper. Normally, it sets up the action that is to take place in the book. It's complement is the epilogue which ties up loose ends at the end of a book.
