George Balanchine's ballet Jewels dates from late in his career as a choreographer and was premiered at the New York City Ballet in 1967. It has been a core part of the repertoire of the Mariinsky Ballet (also known as the Kirov) since 1999. Regarded as the world s first abstract ballet, Jewels features music by Fauré, Stravinsky and Tchaikovsky.

The performance was filmed by Brian Large at the Mariinsky Theatre and includes a bonus interview with the Artistic Director of the Mariinsky Theatre, Valery Gergiev.
