This paper catalogues the significative techniques used by Berlioz, Tchaikovsky, and Prokofiev to represent love and death in their respective Romeo and Juliet adaptations. In particular, this analysis focuses on the Balcony and Tomb Scenes; the pivotal scenes of the play In which the concepts of love and death are fully developed. The author draws from semiotics, topic theory, and traditional forms of music analysis in order to construct a comprehensive study of these composers representational devices.
