Before emigrating to the West, George Balanchine studied in St Petersburg and was a member of the Mariinsky. Jewels dates from late in his career as a choreographer, and was premiered at the New York City Ballet in 1967. Although it did not receive its first performance at the Mariinsky until 1999, it has since become a core part of the company's repertoire.
