Debussy and the veil of tonality essays on his music

In Shakespeare's play, Juliet, not quite 14 years old, falls in love with Romeo and marries him in a day: the consequences are tragic for both families. Prokofiev's ballet score, which dates from the mid-1930s, fully embraces the bucolic and murderous interactions of the Montagu and Capulet families, and the intense drama of the protagonists' brief love lives, and deaths; the emotional heart of the work is the Balcony Scene duet for Romeo and Juliet: in fact, Kenneth MacMillan's famous Royal Ballet production was built out from just this scene. There is no greater depiction in all music of the yearning and burning intensity of fresh, innocent, adolescent love.
