Choreographed by George Balanchine in 1967, Jewels is recognized as the first great abstract work of classical ballet. The piece, inspired by a visit by Balanchine to Van Cleef & Arpels, consists of three acts: “Emeralds,” “Rubies” and “Diamonds,” featuring music by Fauré, Stravinsky and Tchaikovsky, respectively.
