Bolshoi Live : Jewels

LIVE from Moscow. A glamorous homage to Paris, New York and St.Petersburg.

Bolshoi Live : Jewels 1

This glamorous triptych was inspired by Balanchine’s visit to the famous jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels on New York’s Fifth Avenue, and created as an homage to the cities and dance schools of Paris, New York and St. Petersburg that made a vital impact on the revered choreographer’s career.

Emeralds for the elegance and sophistication of Paris, rubies for the speed and modernity of New York, and diamonds for an imperial St. Petersburg.

Three sparkling scenes accompanied by the music of three essential composers, feature the styles of the three dance schools that have contributed to making George Balanchine a legend of modern ballet.

Music: Gabriel Fauré, Igor Stravinsky, Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Choreography: George Balanchine

Cast: The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet

This performance is a live broadcast from Moscow to the Bridport Electric Palace.
