Return of Les Trocks

The legendary Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo returns to the UK in 2011 with a new programme of Go for Barocco, Raymonda’s Wedding, a pas de deux and the company’s signature piece, Swan Lake Act II.

Affectionately known as The Trocks, the company’s 16 professional male dancers faithfully bring to life some of the greatest moments of classical ballet, displaying startling technique. Treading a fine line between high art and high camp, it is a fusion that celebrates both the beauty and the essential absurdity of classical ballet. The dancers perform en pointe in glittering tutus, combining a loving knowledge of dance with a wicked sense of fun.

Winners of the Critics’ Circle National Dance Awards and the TMA Theatre Award, The Trocks’ combination of pure comedy, extraordinary technical prowess and genuine love of ballet have made them a global phenomenon since they formed in New York in 1974.

The tour, presented by Dance Consortium, begins on Tuesday 8 March and runs until Saturday 16 April, for further information please visit
