Choreography by George Balanchine
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.
