This week, Valentine's Day romance continues with a look at Romeo and Juliet in music.
There is an early 1776 operatic version - from Georg Benda who eliminated many of the play’s characters and made Juliet the strongest and most important character.
Then there's Berlioz 's epic choral symphonic work which was inspired by a performance the composer saw in 1827 that starred the actress Harriet Smithson, who also inspired his Symphonie fantastique .
Catherine also has ballet music from Prokofiev whose Romeo and Juliet was said to be 'undanceable' by the ballet company that commissioned it. Leonard Bernstein relocated the story to New York City with the warring Montagues and Capulets becoming rival street gangs - the Sharks and the Jets.
