Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo promise a performance that will impress and delight dance connoisseurs, while also entertaining those who have never experienced ballet before.
Male dancers often voice a common complaint: ballet offers them few roles. Take “Swan Lake” or “Giselle.” While these classics burst at the seams with female swans and undead maidens, they offer just one or two male parts with significant dancing. Forty years ago, the creators of Les Ballets Trockadero (the Trocks, for short) set out to change this. And they did so by merging ballet with comedy, performing parody ballets in the heart of New York City — featuring all-male casts. They presented playful and entertaining performances, rife with both physical comedy and impressive technique. Its productions still feature an all-male cast, performing classic and modern ballets with impeccable precision, including dancing the women’s parts en pointe.
