...presents...

George Balanchine's

JEWELS

featuring the music of:
GABRIEL FAURÉ, IGOR STRAVINSKY, and PYTOR ILYICH TCHAIKOVSKY


This opulent triptych was inspired by Balanchine’s visit to the famous jeweller Van Cleef & Arpels on New York’s Fifth Avenue, celebrating the cities and dance schools of Paris, New York and St. Petersburg, each bound to its own precious stone: emerald, ruby and diamond.

Balanchine built an homage of captivating beauty to the three dance schools that had forged his style, each represented by a contrasting gemstone. Jewels offers a unique occasion to enjoy the genius of choreographer’s visually captivating work performed by some of the world’s most dazzling dancers in a live broadcast to cinemas.
