The perfect marriage of style and substance, George Balanchine’s Jewels is required viewing for any ballet fan. Underneath their glittering exterior lies a perfect primer to Balanchine’s style—Emeralds whispers of grace, courtesy, and French perfume; Rubies sizzles with American sass; and Diamonds conjures the magnificence of old St. Petersburg.

“It’s pure dance: perfectly placed legs pointing to the sky, dreamily partnered pirouettes, a delicate interweaving of hands, an arm caught in a perfect curve, a world created.”

Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times

“When the dancers began to move, they looked like celestial jewels twirling across the universe.”

Rich Smith, The Stranger

“The full-length work is a challenge for any company but PNB is easily up to the task of managing the fluidity of Emeralds, the ferocious angularity of Rubies and the aristocratic hauteur of Diamonds.”

Alice Kaderlan, Seattle PI
