An extract from the Mariinsky label's first DVD / Blu-Ray release of Balanchine's 'Jewels', featuring the Mariinsky Ballet and Orchestra. Soloists: Ulyana Lopatkina, Igor Zenlensky, Zhanna Ayupova, Irina Golub, Andrian Fadeyev Regarded as the world's first abstract ballet, Jewels consists of three acts; Emeralds, Rubies and Diamonds featuring music by Fauré, Stravinsky and Tchaikovsky respectively. There is a stark contrast in composition and style for each of the three acts, linked only by the dancers' dazzling costumes encrusted with coloured gems corresponding to the title act.
