Ballet West is proud to present Winter Streaming: The Best of Ballet West, a six-week series of archival ballets edited and uploaded free of charge.
This week, Winter Streaming: The Best of Ballet West continues with George Balanchine’s Rubies.
Rubies, the second ballet in his triptych Jewels, is a joyous, sassy, and high-energy romp. From the sensational and dramatic opening to the flirty and playful pas de deux, Rubies embodies Balanchine’s vision of a 1920’s American urban landscape. Driven by the brilliance of Stravinsky, Rubies truly sparkles.
Enjoy George Balanchine’s Rubies February 19-25, free of charge, and generously underwritten by BMW of Murray.
Until then, enjoy Director’s Pointe, a pre-performance video series that will shed new light on the performance you are about to see.
