Gabriel Fauré, Igor Stravinsky, Pjotr Ilyich Tsaykovsky: Jewels


Ballet performance from the Bolshoi Ballet, Moscow, 155 min, 2016

Show times:

Director:

Coreographer: George Balanchine

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…

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. Jewels offers a unique occasion to enjoy Balanchine’s visually captivating work, as the Bolshoi is the only company authorized by the Balanchine Trust to film and broadcast his masterpiece.

Premier: 2016.01.17.
