Romeo and Juliet is written in the tradition of classical ballet, related to Tchaikovsky and Delibes; in the musical sense, it brings much more than just an elaborate rhythmic form that is supposed to accompany dance. Quite evident everywhere is the composer's exceptional talent for creating the appropriate mood and character of the music. The lyrical element did not flourish in any other Prokofiev's work as strongly as in this ballet.
