George Balanchine’s JEWELS™

Presented by Pacific Northwest Ballet

"Simple and complex, thought-provoking and crowd-pleasing, deeply traditional and utterly modern, [an] affirmation of Balanchine's genius." —The New York Times

Costumed in emerald green, ruby red, and luminous white, the trio of gems in George Balanchine's Jewels pay tribute to golden ages of music and dance. Evoking the birthplace of Romantic ballet, Emeralds' graceful clouds of tulle whisper French courtesy, fashion, and fragrance. Rubies mirrors the carefree spontaneity of America, Balachine's beloved adopted country: a sassy, jazzy collaboration with Stravinsky. The splendor of Diamonds recalls the great choreographer's heritage, so that "if the entire Imperial Russian inheritance of ballet were lost, Diamonds would still tell us of its essence." (Mary Clarke and Clement Crisp)
