Lincoln Center’s All-Star Jewels Casting Announced

In November, Lincoln Center announced that three of the world’s biggest companies—New York City Ballet, Paris Opéra Ballet and the Bolshoi Ballet—would present a collaborative performance of George Balanchine’s Jewels July 20–23 in honor of the ballet’s 50th anniversary. Each company will take an act, with the Paris Opéra performing “Emeralds” and NYCB and the Bolshoi alternating performances of “Rubies” and “Diamonds.” Yesterday, Lincoln Center finally announced what we’ve all been waiting for: the all-star cast list. (As well as rising stars–Alena Kovaleva and Jacopo Tissi, two young Bolshoi corps members, are slated to dance the leads in “Diamonds” for one performance.) Check out the list below this trailer!
