The Fugard Theatre | Jewels
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 re of ‘Rubies’ comes from Stravinsky and the jazz-age energy of New York.
