by Vikki Jane Vile - Jun 10, 2017

by Vikki Broad - Apr 3, 2017

It's plain to see why Jewels, Balanchine's work that marks it's half century this year, has an enduring appeal. It's a pure, glossy, glittering spectacle to be devoured and enjoyed by those viewing it. The advantage of a plotless ballet is that it allows one to sit back and absorb the beauty of the movements, costuming and staging and that's what good theatre for the masses is all about. (more...)
