The sacred traditions of classical ballet are ripe for parody, and the hairy-chested, tutu-clad boys of Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo are happy to provide it. But these "ballerinas" aren't just having a laugh; they actually dance en pointe
, combining impeccable technical skill with a wicked sense of humor and comic timing to entertain both ballet aficionados and those who wouldn't know a grand battement
if it hit them in the face. It's a combination that has earned The Trocks praise from The New York Times, Variety
, London's Daily Telegraph
, to name a few. Now, to celebrate its 40th anniversary, the troupe performs two works from its first Zellerbach Hall performance back in 1976: Swan Lake
and Don Quixote
. Don't miss this loving sendup brought to you by Cal Performances.
