Emeralds Gabriel Fauré, music
Rubies

Igor Stravinsky, music

Roberto Cominati, piano

Diamonds Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, music

A precious evening: inspired by the art of the jewellery designer Claude Arpels, Balanchine chose music that would reveal the essence of each jewel. Each section differs by music, colour, and atmosphere. Emeralds evokes the nineteenth-century dances of French romanticism. Rubies, sparkling and spirited, fully incarnates the collaboration between Stravinsky and Balanchine. Diamonds evokes the order and grandeur of Imperial Russia and the Mariinsky Theatre, where Balanchine developed as an artist.

 

The performance of "Jewels", choreography by George Balanchine© The George Balanchine Trust, a Balanchine® Ballet, is presented by arrangement with the George Balanchine Trust and has been produced in accordance with the Balanchine Style® and Balanchine Technique® Service standards established and provided by the Trust.
