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
fire of ‘Rubies’ comes from Stravinsky and the jazz-age energy of New York.
Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet with the splendour of Imperial
Russia and the peerless music of Tchaikovsky in ‘Diamonds’.
