Pacific Northwest Ballet performs George Balanchine's glittering masterpiece, "Jewels", a full-length, three-act plotless ballet that uses the music of three very different composers: Fauré, Stravinsky and Tschaikovsky. Balanchine was inspired by jewelry designer Claude Arpels, and chose music revealing the essence of each jewel--emeralds, rubies and diamonds. Each section of the ballet, playing at McCaw Hall in Seattle, is distinct in both music and mood.
