    I have just seen ballet of Balanchine "Jewels" in 3 parts. Every part is by different composer.

    The most remarkable dance is in second part "Rubies" on music of Stravinsky (Capriccio for piano and orchestra):



    And the most remarkable music in this ballet is in 3 part "Diamonds" (it is used Symphony N3 of Tchaikovsky without first movement):

    I have the Paris Ballet’s DVD. Also parts of Jewels are included in one of the two DVDs that make up Choreography by Balanchine, a TV special from the 1970s. What you lose in video quality, you gain by knowing this performance was supervised by Balanchine, himself. I’m not sure, but I believe it included some of the dancers who originated the roles in 1967. Here’s Emeralds.

    I’ve seen the current generation of NYCB dancers perform it twice. On another occasion (a Balanchine/Stravinsky evening), I saw just Rubies.

    One performance I did not get to see had The Paris Ballet dancing Emeralds, City Ballet dancing Rubies and the Mariinsky dancing Diamonds.
