Miami City Ballet opened its 2007-2008 season with a dazzling performance of George Balanchine's "Jewels". Softgoods and backdrops by iWeiss. "Diamonds": Velour Drop with punched "flickering" candles. Fiber Optic Net drop. "Rubies": Punched Velour Drop with Red Silk Background. Fiber Optic Net Drop. "Emeralds": Fiber Optic Net Drop. "With a new version of Tony Walton's famous set, Jewels looked terrific -- a floating galaxy of green lights for Emeralds, a ballroom/street vision in red for Rubies, and a cloud of white lights that became a universe of chandeliers in Diamonds. They lit up with flickering "candles" for the finale of Diamonds, Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 3 in D Major soaring while a dizzying crowd of white-clad dancers wound and wove elaborate patterns underneath them, a universe of ballet that seemed to go on forever." - Jordan Levin, Miami Herald.
