A Night at the Ballet: Balanchine's Jewels
Hosted by Gem X Core and the New York City Ballet
It was a rainy Sunday afternoon and we spent it in beautiful company…at the @nycballet finale performance of Balanchine’s “Jewels.”
Each of the three dazzling movements was costumed in a different jewel color. Emeralds moved at Fauré’s romantic pace, while Rubies pulsed to Stravinsky’s jazz- like a “shot of espresso” according to @joshbarone. The performance culminated with Tschaikovsky, paying homage to Balanchine’s Russian heritage. We loved every second of the performance and ogled over the details in the dazzling costume design by Mme. Karinska.
