Irving Arts Center presents the funniest night you will ever have at the ballet… The evening of February 25 will mark the return of Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo to the Carpenter Hall stage.
The famed ballet company commonly known as “The Trocks” blend incredible technique, impeccable comic timing and the astounding fact that men can, indeed, dance en pointe (in drag) without falling flat on their faces! Enjoy hilarious twists on classics like Swan Lake, Don Quixote, and Giselle from this all-male troupe performing the full range of the ballet and modern dance repertoire in stunning makeup and costumes.
The talented dancers, playing both male and female roles, perform an impressive repertoire of both classical ballet and contemporary dance. They are poking fun, but they are doing so with excellent form and skill while managing to be quite funny.
With a rich history that dates back to 1974, The Trocks are now a worldwide phenomenon, a delight for dance aficionados and novices alike. Audiences can’t get enough of the Trocks graceful movement, hilarious wit, frilly tutus and man-sized toe shoes!
