Not really adapted from a particular Fairytale, but Princess Tutu is an amazing modern day fairytale story that has elements of the Ugly Duckling, Hansel and Gretel and a bunch of other classics. It also uses the music from Swan Lake on several occasions.

Ponyo is pretty similar to the Little Mermaid

As for Romeo and Juliet, theres Romeo x Juliet but I havent seen it

Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid (アンデルセン童話 にんぎょ姫 Anderusen Dōwa Ningyo hime?, lit. "Andersen's Fairy Tales: Princess Mermaid") is a Japanese anime film based on Hans Christian Andersen's eponymous fairy tale, released in 1975 by Toei Animation. Unlike the later Walt Disney Pictures animated film adaptation released 14 years later, this film is closer to Andersen's original story, notably in its preservation of the original ending.
