Jewels

April 5, 6 & 10-13, 2013

A Utah premiere, Jewels showcases George Balanchine’s masterful choreography in a radiant triple bill. Known as the first abstract full-length work, this beautiful ballet is presented in three acts – each one creating a different mood. Emeralds, set to the lush music of Gabriel Faure, evokes the hushed intrigue and romance of the French courts. Rubies – a high velocity romp to Igor Stravinsky’s fast-paced, jazz-infused score, mirrors the carefree spontaneity of 1920’s New York. Diamonds is Balanchine's dazzling tribute to the Imperial Russian Ballet and work of Marius Petipa with the music of Peter Tchaikovsky.

 “…simple and complex, thought-provoking and crowd-pleasing, deeply traditional and utterly modern.” 
– Roslyn Sulcas, The New York Times
