The boys are back in town! Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo return to Vancouver by popular demand. New York’s all-male ballerinas are back with more highbrow hilarity following 2015’s sold out, smash hit appearance.

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo

The sensational evening will see the all-male, cross-dressing troupe apply breathtaking technical prowess and rampant sauciness to a new batch of ridiculously re-interpreted classical ballets, including Swan Lake, La Esmeralda, and Don Quixote.

When: January 20 & 21, 2017 at 8:00pm
Where: Queen Elizabeth Theatre (600 Block Hamilton St, Vancouver)
Tickets: $29 to $129 (plus applicable fees) online or by phone 1-877-840-0457

Founded by a group of professional dancers in 1974, the New-York based company is dedicated to presenting saucily skewered, lovingly crafted parodies of the beloved ballet classics.

Since its first performances, the company was recognized and lauded by audiences and esteemed critics alike, and began a grand tradition of international touring shortly thereafter. Today, Les Trocks have performed in more than 30 countries and 500 cities worldwide.

In the four decades since the company’s founding, the original concept of Les Trocks has not changed. The company of professional male dancers perform a full range of classical ballet and modern dance repertoire, with faithful and attentive detail paid to the manners and conceits of the various dance styles.

The ensemble’s legendary comedy emerges by incorporating and exaggerating the foibles, accidents, and underlying incongruities of serious dance. The fact that men dance all the parts – heavy bodies delicately balancing en pointe as swans, sylphs, water sprites, romantic princesses, and angst-ridden Victorian ladies – enhances, rather than mocks, the spirit of dance as an art form, delighting and amusing novice and knowledgeable audiences alike.
