This opulent triptych was inspired by Balanchine's visit to the famous jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels on New York's Fifth Avenue, celebrating the cities and dance schools of Paris, New York and St. Petersburg, each bound to its own precious stone. With this first abstract ballet, Balanchine built an homage of captivating beauty to the dance schools that had forged his style: Paris, New York, and St Petersburg, each represented by a contrasting jewel: emerald, ruby, and diamond. Jewels offers a unique occasion to enjoy Balanchine's visually captivating work, as the Bolshoi is only company authorized by the Balanchine Trust to film and broadcast his masterpiece.
In ancient Rome, Spartacus, a Thracian king, is turned captive by Crassus with his wife Phrygia. Forced to fight as a gladiator and kill one of his friends, Spartacus plots an unprecedented upheaval.

This most spectacular production is an epic tour de force, giving full expression to the virility and strength for which the Bolshoi's male dancers are renowned.

Colin Quinn has noticed a trend during his decades on the road-that Americans' increasing political correctness and sensitivity have forced us to tiptoe around the subjects of race and ethnicity altogether.
