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.
