About Jewels

This opulent triptych was inspired by George Balanchine's visit to the famous jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels on New York's Fifth Avenue, celebrating the cities and dance schools of Paris, New York and St. Petersburg, each bound to its own precious stone. With this first abstract ballet, Balanchine built an homage of captivating beauty to the dance schools that had forged his style: Paris, New York, and St Petersburg, each represented by a contrasting jewel: emerald, ruby, and diamond. The beautiful three-act performance is Balanchine's love letter to the art of classical ballet. Each act embodies its own distinct character. Emeralds features music by Fauré and is wrought with romanticism. Rubies features music from Stavinsky and has a jazzy, New York vibe. Lastly, Diamonds highlights the works of Tchaikovsky and is the epitome of Imperial Russian style.

Jewels offers a unique occasion to enjoy Balanchine's visually captivating work, as the Bolshoi is only company authorized by the Balanchine Trust to film and broadcast his masterpiece. Starring Olga Smirnova, Semyon Chudin, Vladislav Lantratov, Anna Tikhomirova, Ekaterina Krysanova, and the Bolshoi Corps de Ballet
