Shakespeare’s immortal drama inspired some of the most original and colourful music Prokofiev wrote in his career. It follows and comments the tragic love story with powerful orchestral explosions and sympathetic themes which seem to be aware of the characters’ inner feelings and thoughts. When the music was edited into suites, the music conquered the world and since then belongs to the repertoire of great orchestral music.
