Let's start with a quote
from one of the most important books in my life:
The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Form is absolutely essential to it. 
It should have the dignity of a ceremony, 
as well as its unreality, 
and should combine the insincere character of a romantic play 
with the wit and beauty that make such plays delightful to us. 
Is insincerity such a terrible thing? I think not. 
It is merely a method by which we can multiply our personalities.

I just found a performance
that is a perfect illustration for it :)

Jewels choreographed by Balanchine.
They outfits are based on different jewels:
emeralds (my fav), rubies and diamonds.

It is an abstract ballet
so you can fully concentrate on a form.
Unreal and insincere.
Pompous like a ceremony.
The essence of  pure art.
