Based in New York, but famous and adored internationally, the Trocks are 18 male ballet dancers who take on male and female roles in some of the best known ballets of the classical repertoire, ranging from Swan Lake to Raymonda and much else besides.
Audiences and critics alike love the Trocks. The New York Times highlights their ‘fabulous charm’; and the Telegraph perfectly summed up the key to their success thus: ‘When a big, hairy-chested Trock ballerina executes a familiar variation, we suddenly see classical ballet writ large, and it’s an oddly moving experience.’
For their forthcoming tour, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo will bring two programmes to the Peacock:
Programme A in the first week, will include extracts from Swan Lake and The Little Humpback Horse;
Programme B in week two consists of extracts from La Sylphide, Bournonville’s Napoli, and the wedding scene from the courtly 19th century Petipa work, Raymonda.
Unless you've had a total sense of humour by-pass, you, too, will love Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. Go!
