Good news for anyone who enjoyed the Mariinsky’s stunning Ballet Imperial during their recent stint at London’s Covent Garden – their take on Balanchine’s Jewels is being issued on DVD and Blu-ray on 3 October 2011.

Filmed at the Mariinsky Theatre (it’s unclear when at the moment) it features Ulyana Lopatkina, Igor Zelensky and Irina Golub and there’s also a special interview with the Artistic Director of the Mariinsky Theatre, Valery Gergiev. It’s a different production than appears on the Paris Opera Ballet DVD but the same as The Royal Ballet’s which you can catch in live performance at the Royal Opera House from 20 September 2011.
