There are very few works of art that have had such a profound influence on classical composers than Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. This week on Sticky Notes we take a look at 5 different settings of the play by Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Berlioz, Gounod, and Bernstein. Its no accident that I chose an overture, a ballet, a symphony, an opera, and a musical; it shows the astonishing variety of approaches to the play, and its flexibility in fitting almost every form classical music takes. Thanks for listening!
