11. Romeo and Juliet, Prokofiev
You may have heard 'The Dance of the Knights' (also known as 'Montagues and Capulets') as the ominous theme tune for The Apprentice, but there's a lot more to this ballet. Love, quarrels, fights, and, of course, the famous balcony scene play out in Prokofiev's characterful ballet score.
