The Royal Ballet dazzle in Jewels
The Royal Ballet opened this season with a sparkling rendition of George Balonchine's ballet Jewels, performed at the glamorous Royal Opera House; Fortunately, as a training ballerina, managed to beat the crowd by obtaining tickets to see the dress rehearsal. Jewels, a ballet I had previously watched last year in Paris, has remained one of my favourites. The show is divided into three sections: Emeralds, Rubies and Diamonds, providing the perfect performance for the glamorous arts fan to enjoy.
Emeralds: The opening number, immediately captivates you as you stare in awe at the exceptional green jewelled costumes that the dancers elegantly display. Balonchine's choreography compliments the Emerald as the jewel of eternal hope, harmony and grace.
Rubies: A more dynamic piece, exemplified by the more feisty music played, compliments the chic-seductive nature embodied by this enchanting red stone. The red glowing colour of the Ruby symbolises love, vivacity, passion and power. These traits are encaptured in the choreography and performance given by the dancers, enabling the audience to understand the nature of this precious jewel.
Diamonds: The final sequence of this three act ballet, left me in a overwhelming daze. A stage filled with delicate dancers, dressed in dazzling diamond tutu's is pure bliss to the eye. The choreography, including an incredible Pas de deux, presents this famously fragile jewel as a delicate frosting to any woman.
The performance over, leaving an audience that could desire nothing more than to watch the show one more time, I headed towards the Covent Garden Hotel, with a few friends that accompanied me. As we sat sipping tea and discussing which act we had enjoyed the most, mine being a toss up between Rubies with its choreographic charm and Diamonds with its serene and delicate nature, I became aware that a jewel is not so much about appearance (however mesmerising) but what it signifies to you about yourself.
