Jewels

It was the window display of a legendary jeweler on New York's Fifth Avenue that inspired George Balanchine's 1967 ballet Jewels. The opulently decorated arrangements of the jewels – emeralds, rubies and diamonds – gave the three parts of his choreography their names: Emeralds, Rubies and Diamonds. Each of the three gems evoked associations, which Balanchine translated into a brilliant dance composition that has found its way into the repertoire worldwide.
Emeralds is based on music by Gabriel Fauré, whose composition reminded Balanchine of an ethereal French dance style. Energetically, vital and athletically he interprets Rubies to a composition by Igor Stravinsky, while in Diamonds he unfolds the imperial brilliance of the Russian ballet tradition, from which he himself originated.
George Balanchine, with his purist dance style, has led ballet into the modern age and with his taste has become a style icon of neoclassical ballet. In his choreographies he plays with the virtuosity and skills of the dancers, the flair of the ballerina, the structure and mood of the music. Understatement and elegance are the trademarks of his choreographic handwriting.

Dance compositions as top-class as a jewel

Emeralds is based on music by Gabriel Fauré, whose compositions Balanchine reminds us of an ethereal French dance style. Energetic, vital and athletic, he interprets Rubies into a composition by Igor Stravinsky, while in Diamonds he unfolds all the imperial brilliance of the Russian ballet tradition from which he himself originated.

Neoclassical Ballet

George Balanchine has led the ballet with his puristic dance style into the modern age and with his taste has become a style icon of neoclassical ballet. In his choreographies he plays virtuosically with the skills of the dancers, the flair of the ballerina, the structure and mood of the music. Understatement and elegance are the trademarks of his choreographic handwriting.
