Ludwig van Beethoven wrote his ballet The Creatures of Prometheus (Die Geschöpfe des Prometheus) in 1801, following a libretto by Salvatore Viganò. It premiered that same year- The overture has since become a part of the standard concert repertoire for most orchestras. The main theme of the fourth mvement of the Eroica symphony, as well as the Eroica Variations, are based on the last theme of the ballet.
