“Keen parody always turns on some level of mastery of the target, and here the Trocks set the standard, with whipping turns…buoyant jumps and, most of all, uncanny speed.” (Chicago Tribune)
For almost 40 years, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, have been performing hilarious and technically impressive parodies of the world’s most-loved ballets. Performing in tutus, tiaras and tights, this all-male ballet company specializes in hilarious twists on the classics such as Swan Lake and Giselle, with equal parts comedy and technical prowess. Devoted fans and newcomers alike will be awed and delighted by the company’s loving knowledge of dance, comic approach, and the astounding fact that men can, indeed, dance en pointe without falling flat on their faces.
Post-Show Conversation with the Dancers: Following the performance there will be a Q&A session with the company members.
