Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo 2015

Fri 13 Feb 2015

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo (or ‘The Trocks’ to their friends), return… in size 12 pointe shoes. 

This company of professional male dancers presents an inspired blend of their loving knowledge of dance, their brilliant comic approach, and the astounding fact that men can, indeed, dance en pointe without falling flat on their faces! 

Hurtling through the classical ballet repertoire with their inimitable blend of skill, grace and a wit as sharp as scissors en pointe, The Trocks have been a global phenomenon since they formed in New York in 1974. Dancers, including Ida Nevasyneva and Olga Supphozova, present two programmes which effortlessly display their startling technical prowess and their no-less extraordinary make-up skills.

Enjoy show-stopping Swan Lake (Act II), Merce Cunningham-inspired Patterns in SpaceGo For Barocco, a satire on Balanchine’s choreography, and the UK premiere of Don Quixote.
