Inspired by New York’s 5th Avenue famous jewellery shops, this triptych is a tribute to women and to the cities of Paris, New York and St. Petersburg.

Choreographed in 1967 in New York City, this ballet with precious stone and jewel-like costumes, celebrates the three cities and three dance schools which forged the elegance, aesthetic and style of choreographer George Balanchine. Emeralds was conceived as a poetic tribute to the French romantic school, Rubies to the American tradition of Broadway musicals, whilst Diamonds honours the virtuosity of classical Russian dancers.
