I used to dance Ballet for around 4-5 years when I was little and had to stop as soon as we reached toe dance. For that it was required to train 3 times a week and with school that wasn't compatible anymore. But no matter how long it has been, I still know all the positions, love the classical music we danced to and visit ballets as often as I can! Somehow those ballerinas have an aura that just gets me every time.

When I got asked to join the premiere of the ballet piece "Jewels" in Berlin, I definitely didn't have to think twice. For me ballets don't have to have a plot. It's not like theater or a musical. For me it's enough to simply see them dance, spin around and enjoy an amazing choreography.

JEWELS was a little bit like that. Devided into three parts, every part focused on a different jewel. It started with the green emerald, followed by the red ruby and the grand finale was obviously the king of all jewels... the diamond. In between every scene there was a little break. All three parts couldn't have been more different. Not just the costumes, the set and the dancers, but especially the music made it very distinguishable. The Emeralds danced to Gabriel Fauré and brought a little romantic Paris flair on stage, while the rubies were far more jazzy accompanied by the melodies of Igor Strawinsky. It felt like being in New York during the 80s/90s. It was also my personal favourite in terms of music! The diamonds danced to music by Peter I. Tschaikowsky and reminded me of the classical Russian ballet performances that are still my absolute highlight. Somehow ballet is always a very different surreal word and you forget where you are completely.  

Besides the incredible dancers, it was also interesting to see how costumes can completely change the mood on every set. With everyone spinning around the spotlights and the diamonds interacted in such a beautiful way that the whole stage seemed to be sparkling non stop. Mastermind behind the costumes by the way, was the Spanish fashion designer Lorenzo Caprile. He usually dresses the Spanish prince and princesses.

All together it was just an amazing event. If you are fan of a classical performance (which I am... I usually don't like too modern approaches to something traditional like ballet), then you should definitely visit the Deutsche Oper and check it out!
