Details

»Dance is music made visible« – this statement by George Balanchine, one of the most important choreographers of the 20th century, is particularly true of his ballet »Jewels«. Inspired by jewellery from Maison Van Cleef & Arpels, Balanchine created a three-part work which reflects influences of three major ballet schools – France (Fauré, »Emeralds«), the United States (Stravinsky, »Rubies«) and Russia (Tchaikovsky, »Diamonds«) – and is also an homage to the three important centres of classical ballet that played a central part in Balanchine’s life story. With costumes designed by the legendary Karinska, Balanchine’s dancers sparkle like jewels: the emeralds have an ethereal softness, the rubies are cool, vital and sexy, and the diamonds have an imperial brilliance.
