Come see the Bolshoi Ballet dance Balanchine's classic
Widely considered one of the premier ballet companies of all time, the Bolshoi Ballet has been wowing audiences both in Russia and around the world for decades.
Come see for yourself what makes them so special as they perform the magnificent and critically-acclaimed “Jewels” on the big screen live from their home in Moscow.
This opulent triptych was inspired by Balanchine’s visit to the famous jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels on New York’s Fifth Avenue, and celebrates the cities and dance schools of Paris, New York and St. Petersburg, each represented by its own precious stone: emerald, ruby, and diamond.
With this first abstract ballet, Balanchine paid homage to the captivating beauty of the dance schools that had forged his style: colorful, stylistic and always unforgettable.
