To spare commentary on the written thing itself, I want to know:
What composition do you prefer?
Tchaikovsky's overture? Berlioz's dramatic symphony? Prokofiev's ballet? Gounod's or one of the other countless operas based on the poem? Maybe another less renown work re R&J?
The thing seems to bring out some deep passion in composers, especially compared to Bill's other masterworks. Curious where TC's preference lies.
