Music by Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Gounod and Bernstein
• Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky began work on his Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture while he was a 29-year-old lawyer and revised it three times over the next 10 years.
• Sergey Prokofiev extracted three different concert suites from his 1936 Romeo and Juliet ballet masterpiece.
• Charles Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette opera was first performed in 1888, and remains one of his most-loved works.
• Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story score modernized the Romeo and Juliet story into one of the most iconic stage productions of the twentieth century. The original Broadway play was nominated for a Tony Award in 1957, and led to numerous revivals and an Oscar-winning movie.
