George Balanchine's evocation of the sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds is a brilliant 3 part ballet classic with music by Gabriel Fauré, Igor Stravinsky and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

The French Romantic music of Fauré provides the impetus for the subtlety and lyricism of 'Emeralds', while the fire of 'Rubies' comes from Stravinsky and the jazz-age energy of New York. Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet with the splendour of Imperial Russia and the peerless music of Tchaikovsky in 'Diamonds'. 'Jewels' is a masterclass in the many luminous facets of classical ballet and indeed of The Royal Ballet itself: the virtuoso choreography of Balanchine, the intensity of the soloists and the precision of the entire Company. Conductor - Pavel Sorokin.
165m approx including 2 intervals.
