Description

If you know nothing about ballet, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo offers a delightful introduction. If you’re an expert, we invite you to experience some classics from a fresh perspective. Founded in 1974, by mid-1975, the Trocks were wooing audiences with an impeccable comic approach, while demonstrating that men can, indeed, dance en pointe without falling flat on their faces. The original concept has not changed. Male dancers perform the full range of ballet and modern dance repertoire. Comedy is achieved by incorporating and exaggerating the foibles and accidents of serious dance. And it’s guys in traditionally female roles. Big fun!
