Sunday 28st May 2017: ‘Jewels – The Royal Ballet’, Rialto, Limassol, 6.30pm:
George Balanchine’s evocation of the sparkle of emeralds, rubies and diamonds is a brilliant ballet classic. The French Romantic music of Fauré provides the impetus for the subtlety and lyricism of ‘Emeralds’, while the fire of ‘Rubies’ comes from Stravinsky and the jazz-age energy of New York. Grandeur and elegance complete the ballet with the splendour of Imperial Russia and the peerless music of Tchaikovsky in ‘Diamonds’.
Jewels is a masterclass in the many luminous facets of classical ballet and indeed of The Royal Ballet itself: the virtuoso choreography of Balanchine, the intensity of the soloists and the precision of the entire Company.

The exhibition, which tours Europe, stops in Pafos this summer. The mosaics of the Roman music scenes depicted here were the inspiration for the exhibition in Cyprus. A guided tour of the exhibition will take place on the evening of the inauguration, as well as music event based on Manos Hadjidakis.
