April 1 – 3, 2022
Ziff Ballet Opera House
1 hour 30 minutes
Balanchine / Fauré / Stravinsky / Tchaikovsky
Jewels has long been described as a perfect night at the theater. Inspired by a visit to famed jewelers Van Cleef and Arpels, Balanchine created three unique mini-ballets that sweep you away to faraway times and cultures. Each distinctive “jewel” enhances and complements the others, and the dancers shine like bursts of light. To see these three exquisite ballets in one evening is an unforgettable experience.
Gliding to Fauré’s dreamy melody, dancers appear in a lush evocation of a misty forest, seemingly transported from the French romantic era of the early 19th century.
“Rubies” is quintessentially American, pulsating with sass, wit and sophistication. The dancers’ hip-swiveling freshness and Stravinsky’s jazzy score conjures the vibrancy and exuberance of a late-night club.
“Diamonds” is pure, beautiful, classical ballet and a tribute to the grandeur of Imperial Russia. Tchaikovsky’s elegant symphony recalls majestic pageantry at its most opulent.
