Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo: Swan Lake

Programme: Le Lac des Cygnes (Swan Lake Act II), Pas de Deux or modern work to be announced, Vivaldi Suite, Raymonda’s Wedding

For almost 50 years, the all-male comedy ballet company Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo (affectionately known as ‘The Trocks’) have been delighting audiences of all ages at sell-out performances featuring their fabulous sense of fun and their flawless dance.

'As the Trocks opened their latest visit to the UK spirits were off the chart…now everyone just wants to have fun.'★★★★ - The Times

'Robert Carter’s applause-hungry Dying Swan was a triumph of physical comedy, his entire body seeming to change size and shape at will'★★★★ - Financial Times

'a unique cultural phenomenon' ★★★★★ - The Stage

Originally from New York, the Trocks are now loved worldwide for their sassy spoofs and hilarious homages to classical ballet, where 16 dancers each transform into two personas, both male and female! Every performance frivolously froths with tutus and testosterone, blush-pink ballet pumps, fierce false eyelashes and prima ballerina attitude.

However, what makes this company extraordinarily special is their immaculate technique and daring physicality, surpassed only by their impeccable comic timing.
