George Balanchine’s extravagant abstract ballet in three parts. Each part draws on a different jewel, a different composer and a different age of ballet history.

The first, ‘Emeralds’, is danced to music by Fauré and encapsulates the poise of nineteenth-century France; ‘Rubies’ set to Stravinsky represents the furious pace of New York City, Balanchine’s adoptive home; and ‘Diamonds’ danced to Tchaikovsky, pays homage to the Imperial Russian tradition. 

Created for New York City Ballet in 1967, Jewels is a stunning example of the way Balanchine’s work successfully fused modernity with classicism.
