Program

Inspired by brilliant precious stones, George Balanchine exquisitely choreographed Jewels in 1967 as

three disparate parts, each with its own composer and striking beauty. The ballet serves as a tribute to the

three cities-Paris, New York, and St. Petersburg, all of which carved the elegance, aesthetic and style of

Balanchine. Emeralds, honoring the French romantic school, reveals the most delicate of movements,

while Rubies reflects the lightning-fast pace of New York in a jazzy, witty and sharp attack. Diamonds is

an homage to the opulence and regality of Balanchine's native Russia. Recently added to the Bolshoi

repertoire, the dancers bring "a fascinating life" (Financial Times) to this ballet that combines pure

virtuosity, class, and elegance.
