Monster Quiz: Test your Romeo and Juliet knowledge

March 18, 2011 | 10:55 am


The Los Angeles Philharmonic beamed its second of three concerts to movie theaters on Sunday. The program, with Gustavo Dudamel conducting Tchaikovsky and film and stage actors performing Shakespeare, got us wondering.

Thanks to years of cheesy movie love scenes, you all know Tchaikovsky's love theme from "Romeo and Juliet" but how much do you know about other artistic treatments of literature's most famous young love?

Ten questions covering film, opera, ballet and orchestra.

Tip: If you have a resident teenager, they may come in handy for #10.


We're still tweaking the Monster Quiz format, so do let us know what you think.
