April Connections?

In the better-late-than-never department, Mr. Sergei Prokofiev was born yesterday, April 23, 1891. A famous Soviet composer, he is probably best known for his “Peter and the Wolf”. He also composed the music for the ballet of “Romeo and Juliet”, and a fine job he did of that. Very punchy.

It is based on William Shakespeare’s play of the same name, all about young love in old Verona.

In a twisted version of things, Mr. Shakespeare was born in 1564, but died on April 23, 1616. There might be a mystical connection there, but We Rhinos are jiggered if We can figure it out.
