    Performance by The Royal Ballet.

    George Balanchine’s timeless evocation of the brilliance and sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds.

    George Balanchine’s evocation of the sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds is a brilliant ballet classic. 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.

    Approximate running time 2 HOURS 30 minutes, INCLUDING TWO INTERVALS, plus a 15-minute introduction.

    Tickets: $15
