This opulent triptych was inspired by 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: emerald, ruby and diamonds.
Balanchine built an homage of captivating beauty to the three dance schools that had forged his style, each represented by a contrasting gemstone with 3 contasting scores by Faure, Stravinsky and Tchaikovsky. 'Jewels' offers a unique occasion to enjoy the genius of choreographer’s visually captivating work performed by some of the world’s most dazzling dancers.
Music Gabriel Fauré, Igor Stravinsky, Pyotr IlyichTchaikovsky: Choreography George Balanchine; The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet.
