Romeo ja Julia on William Shakespearen kirjoittama tragedia. Näytelmä sijoittuu Veronaan ja kertoo kahdesta rakastavaisesta, Romeo Montaguesta ja Julia Capuletista, joiden suvut ovat olleet riidoissa ikimuistoisista ajoista alkaen.
Romeo and Juliet is a ballet by Sergei Prokofiev based on William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet. It is one of the most enduringly popular ballets. Music from the ballet was extracted by Prokofiev as three suites for orchestra and as a piano work.
Sergey Prokofiev's Dance of the Knights, also known as the Montagues and Capulets, is an extremely popular piece of music from his ballet, Romeo and Juliet. There's no denying that Dance of the Knights is definitely an emotionally charged piece of music. With the strong horns and bass on the bottom and a powerful and electric melodic line played by unison strings, Prokofiev's dark and brooding passages can send chills up your spine and set your heart racing.
