#SundaySoundtrack: Romeo and Juliet



Shakespeare's iconic Romeo and Juliet has inspired numerous works of art over the centuries since it was first performed, not least of all pieces of music. For this week's #SundaySoundtrack, we thought we'd give you the opportunity to hear some of the operas, ballets, concert works, and scores to plays and films that the star-crossed lovers' tragic tale helped create. From Tchaikovsky's famous Romeo and Juliet Overture and, of course, Prokofiev's ballet music, to some lesser known composers, we hope you enjoy the sheer diversity of this week's music.
