 Romeo and Juliet (Prokofiev) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Romeo and Juliet is a ballet by Sergei Prokofiev based on Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
The ballet was composed from 1935-1936 as commissioned by the Kirov Ballet, with a happy ending, but was never publicly mounted, partly due to increased fear and caution in the musical and theatrical community in the aftermath of the two notorious Pravda editorials criticising Shostakovitch and other degenerate modernists.
It is better known from the significantly revised version that was first presented at the Kirov in Leningrad, on January 11, 1940, with choreography by Leonid Lavrovsky, to which Prokofiev objected.

 Review: Romeo and Juliet (1996)   (Site not responding. Last check: )

 Romeo and Juliet Summary and Study Guide - William Shakespeare
A perennial staple of high school English classes, Romeo and Juliet was written by Shakespeare at a relatively early juncture in his literary career, most probably in 1594 or 1595.
Indeed, Romeo and Juliet was an experimental stage piece at the time of its composition, featuring several radical departures from long-standing conventions.
The latter include the antithesis between love and hate, the correlative use of a light/dark polarity, the handling of time (as both theme and as structural element), and the prominent status accorded to Fortune and its expression in the dreams, omens and forebodings that presage its tragic conclusion.
