Why See Mariinsky Ballet - Jewels?

Dance & Ballet

Glittering glory

The glittering glory of George Balanchine's triple act masterpiece is on show as the Mariinsky Ballet returns to Los Angeles once more with their rendition of 'Jewels'. One of the most famous pieces in the modern ballet repertoire, prepare for a thrilling ride through the countries, and their respective dance traditions, that influenced the great Balletmaster.

Jewels plays out in three parts, beginning with Emeralds, a sultry and nostalgic evocation of the French school of ballet. Romance and style abound from the moment the dancers appear in their long tutus, extolling the virtues of courtly love through a haze of perfume and a score by Gabriel Faure.

Conversely, Rubies, the middle section, is a jazzy riff on American modernity as scored by longtime Balanchine collaborator Stravinsky. Humor fizzles in this self-aware piece, the rich heritage of Emeralds evolved into a streetsmart and rhythmic celebration of vim and vigor.

Finally, Diamonds closes the program with shimmering grace and grandeur as inspired by Imperial Russian ballet of the Mariinsky where Balanchine himself received his training. With the lush tones of Tchaikovsky, a whole era and tradition are captured in an entrancing and heart-soaring climax.
