‘Jewels’ on Zorlu PSM screen
The Royal Opera House screenings of Zorlu PSM will continue with George Balanchine’s ballet “Jewels” on May 26.
The three-act ballet created by George Balanchine premiered in 1967 at the New York State Theater.
Balanchine, who was the co-founder and founding choreographer of the New York City Ballet, designed a sparkling ballet with three movements called “Emeralds, Rubies and Diamonds.” Each piece had separate music composed by Gabriel Fauré, Igor Stravinsky and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, respectively.
The Royal Opera House production of “Jewels” features new set designs by Jean-Marc Puissant and the original costume design of Karinska, whose different approach to each movements surpassed the fame of the ballet itself and came to be exhibited in museums. The Royal Ballet won two Laurence Olivier Awards for Best New Dance Production and Outstanding Achievement in Dance after the premiere in 2007.
With its 50-year anniversary approaching, The Royal Opera House production of Balanchine’s ballet will be screened at 7 p.m. on the Zorlu PSM Studio screen.
