3. Slaughter on 10th Avenue (1936)
Richard Rodgers' ballet is the story of a tap dancer who falls in love with a dance hall girl who is then shot and killed by her jealous boyfriend. The dancer then shoots the boyfriend. Cheery stuff. The piece entered the repertoire of the New York City Ballet in 1968.
