Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo
“... a deft blend of pirouettes and pratfalls”
Performance Dates
Wednesday, March 18, 2020 7:30pm at CENTENNIAL HALL

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo give new meaning to “men in tights” and go where no man has gone before: on pointe. “The Trocks,” have taken a playful approach to classical ballet since 1974. One part parody and one part loving homage, The Trocks simultaneously honor the traditions of ballet with high-level performance while also poking fun at the conventions that define ballet.

An all-male troupe, The Trocks revel in playing with gender roles and identity. As a 40-year-old company, The Trocks illustrate how decades of exploring and challenging a genre can still be fun and celebratory at the same time. Their hilarious spoofs of famous ballets like Don Quixote, Swan Lake and Nutcracker are performed with impressive immaculate classical technique, incorporating and exaggerating the foibles, accidents, and underlying incongruities of serious dance making The Trocks an artistic and comedic triumph!
