Description: Inspired by brilliant precious stones, George Balanchine exquisitely choreographed Jewels in 1967 asthree disparate parts, each with its own composer and striking beauty. The ballet serves as a tribute to thethree cities-Paris, New York, and St. Petersburg, all of which carved the elegance, aesthetic and style ofBalanchine. Emeralds, honoring the French romantic school, reveals the most delicate of movements,while Rubies reflects the lightning-fast pace of New York in a jazzy, witty and sharp attack. Diamonds isan homage to the opulence and regality of Balanchine's native Russia. Recently added to the Bolshoirepertoire, the dancers bring "a fascinating life" (Financial Times) to this ballet that combines purevirtuosity, class, and elegance.
