The award winning ballet, Jewels, choreographed by George Balanchine has been called the first full-length abstract ballet Balanchine created. It premiered in 1967 by the New York City Ballet. For this three-part ballet, Balanchine used as his inspiration three different composers and the artistry of jewelry designer Claude Arpels. Rubies, the middle section (between Emeralds and Diamonds) is a clever and lighthearted romp, reminiscent of other collaborations between Igor Stravinsky and Balanchine. Set to Stravinsky’s Capriccio for Piano and Orchestra, this 19 minute piece for 15 dancers has become popular as a stand-alone ballet.
