George Balanchine: Jewels
This brilliant production of George Balanchine’s famed ballet takes place in the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia. Considered one of the first abstract ballets, its three acts are linked by the dancers’ jewel-coloured costumes. Each act is set to the music of a different composer: Emeralds to that of Fauré, Rubies to Stravinsky, and Diamonds to Tchaikovsky. Performed by the Mariinsky Ballet, Jewels is a glittering, gorgeous treasure that is sure to delight.
