A BALLET IN THREE PARTS

Composers: Gabriel Fauré, Igor Stravinsky, Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Choreographer: George Balanchine

One of Balanchine’s most elegant masterpieces returns! Emeralds captures French ballet’s romantic era, followed by Rubies, which conveys a jazzy American spirit. The ballet’s glittering crescendo Diamonds serves up a celebratory finale in grand, imperial Russian style.
