About

In few words:

George Balanchine, a fervent admirer of the female gender, pays tribute to them in Joyaux, a ballet inspired by the flamboyant window displays of the jeweller Van Cleef & Arpels on New York’s 5th Avenue. Émeraudes, Rubis and Diamants succeed each other in a skilfully orchestrated triptych, a celebration of the capital cities of the three great schools of dance: Paris, New York and Saint Petersburg. To complete this luminous picture and bring a festive air, the Paris Opera has called upon the designer Christian Lacroix. Who better to bring to life Balanchine’s dream through sets and costumes than this creator of beauty?
