ROH Live Ballet: Jewels (12a)
George Balanchine's evocation of the sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds is a brilliant ballet classic. The French romantic music of Faure provides the impetus for the subtlety and lyricism of 'Emeralds', while the fire of 'Rubies' comes from Stravinksy 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 vituoso choreography of Balanchine, the intensity of the soloists and the precision of the entire Company.
