Culture: San Francisco Ballet Performs George Balanchine's Jewels

The San Francisco Ballet presents George Balanchine’s Jewels, a beautiful three part evening-length performance of "Emeralds," "Rubies", and "Diamonds". The ballet is a celebration of the golden age of dance and showcases Balanchine's expert choreographer skill and vision. Balanchine said that his gemstone-themed ballet with jeweled costumes was inspired, in part, by his introduction to jeweler Claude Arpels, whose collection of precious stones he admired.

Composers: Gabriel Fauré, Igor Stravinsky, Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Choreographer: George Balanchine

Jewels runs from Saturday, April 25 through Sunday, May 10th

War Memorial Opera House

Tickets range in price from $20 to $225

I love the Ballet... specially the music stuff, I think we need more culture about it, because in France and Italy the mass media always talk about the critics and the dancers... U.S. doens't have the same culture about this art.
