1870 first performance of the original version of Peter Tchaikovsky’s fantasy-overture Romeo and Juliet in Moscow with Nicolas Rubinstein conducting; the subject was suggested to Tchaikovsky by Mily Balakirev, who also provided the composer with a detailed plot outline and the musical form, including keys; the work was revised twice, and it is the 1880 final version that is most often heard today.

1894 premiere of Jules Massenet's Thaïs in Paris; set in Egypt during Byzantine rule, where a Cenobite monk, Athanaël, attempts to convert Thaïs, an Alexandrian courtesan and devotee of Venus, to Christianity; the opera is often described as bearing a sort of ‘religious eroticism’.

1920 John Addison – English composer (d.1998); best known for film scores for A Bridge Too Far (1977), The Seven-Per-Cent Solution (1976) and Sleuth (1972) among many others.

1934 Sir Roger Norrington – English conductor (87 years old); founded the Schütz Choir in 1962 and the London Classical Players in 1978.

1937 David Del Tredici – American composer (84 years old); had a decade-long obsession with the work of Lewis Carroll (e.g. An Alice Symphony, Vintage Alice, Adventures Underground, and Final Alice);  awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 1980 for In Memory of a Summer Day, the first part of Child Alice.

1953 Claus Peter Flor – German conductor (68 years old); principal guest conductor of the Dallas Symphony from 1999 to 2008, and from 2008 to 2014, music director of the Malaysian Philharmonic.
