The making of ‘Jewels’

George Balanchine loved women, they dominate most of his choreographies, also “Jewels”. The virtues of his ideal dancers are strength, speed, precision, and balance. “Jewels” showcases these virtues spectacularly and celebrates them in the form of a parade of beauty. Balanchine’s probably most famous quote is: “Ballet is a woman”. Patricia Neary, who performed in the world premiere of 1967 and who rehearsed the “Rubies” part with the Staatsballett dancers in the last several weeks, admits: “I adored him”. What else Patricia Neary has to say about the famous “Mr. B.” and his work and which Staatsballett dancers fulfills his ideals the most, can be discovered in our brand-new “Making-Of-Video”.
