 Indeed, it is not a ballet but an "Oveture-Fantasie". The music has been used in ballet, not long ago in a Boris Eifman treatment of ANNA KARENINA.
The composer himself made sketches for an R & J duet based on the overture themes that was later orchestrated by his fellow student and distant cousin Sergei Taneyev. Several examples on Youtube including live and studio versions featuring Sergei Lemeshev.
Cheers - David
