The ballet “Juwels” was beautifully staged by the Staatsballett. The display window of a legendary jeweler on New York's Fifth Avenue inspired George Balanchine to write his ballet in 1967.

The opulently decorated arrangements of jewels, emeralds, rubies and diamonds gave their names to the three parts of his choreography, Emeralds, Rubies and Diamonds. Each of the three gems aroused associations, which he translated into a brilliant dance composition that has found its way into the world repertoire.

For the opulent stage curtain, Tüchler studied the original designs from Broadway from the sixties and made the stage design completely from stage velour “Midnight”. Finally, it was also studded with rhinestones and sequins.
