Be dazzled by choreography legend George Balanchine's full-length masterpiece, Jewels. Inspired by the artistry of jewelry designer Claude Arpels, Jewels unfolds in three distinct sections -- Emeralds, Rubies and Diamonds -- each with its own music and mood. Emeralds evokes the elegance of France, and is set to the music of Gabriel Fauré. Rubies is influenced by Balanchine's experiences in America, with a jazz-inflected Stravinsky score that sends dancers zipping across the stage in neoclassical style. Finally, the grandeur of Imperial Russia is the inspiration for Diamonds, a nod to Balanchine's own heritage, as is the transportive Tchaikovsky score. Learn More
