About the Event

Jewels
with live orchestra
Choreography by George Balanchine

Created in 1967, and considered the first abstract full-length ballet, George Balanchine’s Jewels is a masterpiece—and a master class—on the history, beauty, and diversity of ballet technique. The French romanticism of Emeralds, danced to Fauré’s dreamy score; Stravinsky’s driving, jazzy energy for Rubies that seems to suggest urban America; and Tchaikovsky’s regal, glittering evocation of the imperial court of Russia in Diamonds all combine to create a treasure chest of dance, performed by one of America’s most vibrant companies.
