Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo

Buxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

For almost 50 years, the all-male comedy ballet company Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo (affectionately known as “The Trocks”) have been delighting audiences of all ages at sell-out performances featuring their fabulous sense of fun and their flawless dance. 

Originally from New York, the Trocks are now loved world-wide for their sassy spoofs and hilarious homages to classical ballet, where 16 dancers each transform into two personas, both ballerina and danseur! 

Every performance frivolously froths with tutus and testosterone, blush-pink ballet pumps, fierce false eyelashes and prima ballerina attitude. However, what makes this company extraordinarily special is their immaculate technique and daring physicality, surpassed only by their impeccable comic timing.

Programme:Le Lac des Cygnes (Swan Lake Act II), Pas de Deux or modern work to be announced, Vivaldi Suite, Raymonda’s Wedding

“The boys are back in town...hilarious, charming and magnificent as they have ever been.”

“Channelling the glories and excesses of old Russian ballerinas, the Trocks are as devoted to the choreography as they are to parodying it.”

“It is abundantly clear that the Trocks are at the top of their game. I advise you not to miss them. My name is Neil and I’m a Trockaholic.”
