I have decided to allow multiple choice, but please don't be a wimp and pick all three.

[As an aside, I hope that Carla Korbes of NYCB grows enough to take on the lead role. Music just fractures though her, and that is what Emeralds needs.]

Choreography, music, costuming.

and I love the part in the pas where the girl does this turned in passe thingy and then throws it into a back attitude, face and arms uplifted, as if to something in heaven.
But the Emeralds pas de trois is probably my favorite to watch, although the music is just as lovely.

"Emeralds" depends a lot on the skill of the principal dancers (I've seen some dreary efforts as Mr. B -- as Merrill Ashley later put it -- "insisted on teaching me to dance slowly." Certainly a dancer of her skill needed "Andante" as well as "Allegro," but that's another topic!)
"Diamonds" is delightful, but "Ballet Imperial" is clearly a superior tribute to Petipa.
