See The Australian Ballet’s live cinema broadcast of the Balanchine Masterpiece.
Join us at Dendy Cinemas Coorparoo on Thursday, 6 July at 7.15pm for a night of Ballet with a glass of sparkling on
arrival to compliment the sparkle of JEWELS – The Australian Ballet’s Live Screening.
George Balanchine’s JEWELS is a three-part ballet celebrating his vision of three jewels. Visually and thematically
structured around the motifs of Emeralds, Rubies and Diamonds, the piece explores the idea of movement radiating
from the body through each specific jewel.
JEWELS showcases Balanchine’s atmospheric musicality. These contrasting works explore his time in Paris, New York
and St Petersburg through the harmony of music and the defining visual elements of colour, shape and silhouette.
Each of the three acts is distinct in style and mood, set to music by three different composers: Fauré for Emeralds,
Stravinsky for Rubies and Tchaikovsky for Diamonds. Opulent costumes and sets unify each of the three sections to
achieve one regal whole, which will showcase the breathtaking classical precision of The Australian Ballet’s artists.
