Inspired by the famous jewellers of New York's Fifth Avenue, 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 its jewel-like costumes, celebrates the three cities and three dance schools that forged the elegance, aesthetic and style of choreographer George Balanchine. Emeralds was conceived as a poetic tribute to the French romantic school and Rubies to the American tradition of Broadway musicals, while Diamonds honours the virtuosity of classical Russian dancers.
