Ekaterina Krysanova and the Bolshoi Corps de Ballet
This opulent triptych was inspired by Balanchine’s visit to the famous jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels on New York’s Fifth Avenue, celebrating the cities and dance schools of Paris, New York and St. Petersburg, each bound to its own precious stone.
With this first abstract ballet, Balanchine built an homage of captivating beauty to the dance schools that had forged his style: Paris, New York, and St Petersburg, each represented by a contrasting jewel: emerald, ruby, and diamond. Jewels offers a unique occasion to enjoy Balanchine’s visually captivating work, as the Bolshoi is the only company authorized by the Balanchine Trust to film and broadcast his masterpiece.
The screening is part of the Megaron cooperation with the historical Russian theater and Pathé Live, which since 2009 has covered and distributed live performances of the Bolshoi in more than 1,200 cinemas in 50 countries worldwide.
