(cancelled) Bolshoi Ballet – Jewels (12A)
This opulent tritych was inspired by George 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: emerald, ruby and diamond. Balanchine built an homage of captivating beauty to the three dance schools that had forged his style, each represented by a contrasting gemstone.
