George Balanchine's JEWELS
February 26-March 8

Balanchine's Jewels captured national press at its 1967 premiere, as one of his most audacious neo-classical works. Inspired by the artistry of jewelry designer Claude Arpels, each act - Emeralds, Rubies, and Diamonds - is distinct in both style and music, with choreographic and costuming elements portraying the essence of each stone. Jewels references ballet's French origins, Russia's imperial style, and Balanchine's own take on the art form.
