The character from A Chorus Line was right: everything is beautiful at the ballet. And as the IHT reports,  Van Kleef & Arpels is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the ballet that was inspired by their Fifth Avenue window. As Susy Menkes reports
" "Jewels" is the name of a ballet, choreographed by
George Balanchine, that celebrates emeralds, rubies and diamonds with
the music of Fauré, Stravinsky and Tchaikovsky. It was first shown in
New York in 1967, making this a 40th anniversary for both the
production and for Van Cleef & Arpels, because Balanchine was
originally inspired by the Fifth Avenue windows of the French jewelry
house to create a ballet around the three stones." Who says art and commerce can’t be happily wed?– Joanne Molina, Senior Editor
