Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo: 50th Anniversary

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 17, 2024 at 7:30PM

Venue Matthews Theater
Run Time 2 hours, including 2 intermissions (15 minutes each)


All of the “ballerinas” dance en pointe — but the genius touch of the Trocks is that while the ballet’s stories and customs are, lovingly, played for laughs, the technique isn’t…— remains a comic masterpiece.

For 50 years, audiences have reveled in the comedic and athletic talents of Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, dubbed the World’s Foremost All-Male Comic Ballet Company. Performing in drag and en pointe, the company wields its technical ability with an inventive hilarity, offering a more lighthearted take on the art of ballet. They celebrate their 50th anniversary in the 2023-2024 season presenting works from throughout the company’s history, including an updated version of the early Trocks classic Yes Virginia, Another Piano Ballet, choreographed by company co-founder Peter Anastos.
