Created by choreographer George Balanchine in 1967, Jewels is a full-length, plotless ballet that uses the music of three very different composers. The three-act work is a masterpiece – and master class – on the facets of classical dance. Each of Jewels is costumed in a different gem – emeralds, rubies, and diamonds. The distinct costumes unify the disparate themes of each jewel – the French romanticism of Emeralds, danced to Fauré’s dreamy score; Stravinsky’s Modernist, high energy score for Rubies; and Tchaikovsky’s regal classicism, evoking the imperial court of Russia in Diamonds.
