The sprightly Rubies, a witty and electrifying ballet set to a jazz-inflected capriccio from Stravinsky, steps out from its Jewels counterparts to join two Balanchine ballets infused with their own haunting atmospheres. Divertimento from ‘Le Baiser de la Fée,’ set to score originally inspired by a dark fairy tale from Hans Christian Andersen, evokes a brooding sense of romance and tragedy, while in La Valse, performed to Ravel, a sense of impending doom gathers as a young woman dances to the edge of the abyss.

Location:
David H. Koch Theater
Running Time:
1 hr 47 min
