Fauré, Stravinsky and Tchaikovsky: Jewels – Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season 2016/17

Live Broadcast – 11 April 2017, 8.15pm CET

George Balanchine’s evocation of the sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds is a brilliant ballet classic. The French Romantic music of Fauré provides the impetus for the subtlety and lyricism of ‘Emeralds’, while the fire of ‘Rubies’ comes from Stravinsky and the jazz-age energy of New York. Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet with the splendour of Imperial Russia and the peerless music of Tchaikovsky in ‘Diamonds’.

This performance is the part of 2016/17 Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season!
