THE PARIS OPERA BALLET ‘JEWELS’
|BALLET AT THE FESTIVAL |
BY GEORGE BALANCHINE
A full-length, three-act, plotless ballet that uses the music of three very different composers, Jewels was inspired by the artistry of jewellery designer Claude Arpels, and the music cleverly reveals the essence of each jewel.
Each section of the ballet is distinct in both music and mood. Emeralds recalls the 19th century dances of the French Romantics while Rubies is crisp and witty, epitomising the collaboration of Stravinsky and Balanchine, and Diamonds recalls the order and grandeur of Imperial Russia and the Mariinsky Theater, where Balanchine was trained.
