In cooperation with Tulsa Ballet
Circle Cinema presents a special production captured from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, Russia. We are thrilled to bring the magnificent and critically-acclaimed Jewels, performed and broadcast from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow.
This opulent triptych was inspired by Balanchine’s visit to the famous jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels on New York’s Fifth Avenue, and celebrates the cities and dance schools of Paris, New York and St. Petersburg, each bound to its own precious stone. With this first abstract ballet, Balanchine paid homage to the captivating beauty of the dance schools that had forged his style, each represented by a contrasting jewel: emerald, ruby, and diamond. Jewels offers a unique occasion to enjoy this visually captivating work, as the Bolshoi is the only company authorized by the Balanchine Trust to film and broadcast his masterpiece.
