George Balanchine’s elegant and animated Jewels (1967) has been dazzling audiences ever since it premiered more than 50 years ago. A beloved favorite in the Balanchine canon, Jewels is a triptych of dances evoking French (“Emeralds”), American (“Rubies”), and Russian (“Diamonds”) ballet traditions, inspired by the choreographer’s visit to the jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels. Miami City Ballet is famed for its dedication to Balanchine’s repertory, style, and technique, and returns for the first time in more than a decade to perform his seminal ballet, danced to music by Fauré, Stravinsky, and Tchaikovsky. “Bold, light, immediate, intensely musical, the dancing of Miami City Ballet flies straight to the heart” (The New York Times).
