Jewels (Balanchine/Fauré, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky)
Miami City Ballet Presents Jewels (Program One)
Nov 17, 2017 - Nov 19, 2017 | Alexander W. Dreyfoos, Jr. Concert Hall
Program One opens with a Balanchine masterpiece created 50 years ago – the full-length Jewels, a triptych of ballet at its most glamorous. First, “Emeralds” – set to the lush music of Gabriel Fauré, is Balanchine at his most romantic and lyrical. Next, “Rubies” – glittering, witty, jazzy: the Balanchine-Igor Stravinsky partnership at its most scintillating. Finally, “Diamonds”– Balanchine reaching back with Tchaikovsky to the classic grandeur of 19th-century Russian ballet at its imperial height.
