Watch May 7, 3:00pm
This brilliant production of George Balanchine’s famed ballet takes place in the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia.

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.
