Royal Opera House: Jewels
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
George Balanchine's evocation of the sparkle of emeralds, rubies anddiamonds is a brilliant ballet classic. The French Romantic music of Faureprovides the impetus for the subtlety and lyricism of 'Emeralds', while thefire of 'Rubies' comes from Stravinsky and the jazz-age energy of New York.
Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet with the splendour of Imperial Russiaand the peerless music of Tchaikovsky in 'Diamonds'.
