Watch out, ballet’s very-grandes dames are back. Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo (or ‘The Trocks’ to their friends) have taken the world by storm over the past three decades with their comedy drag ballet, a fusion that celebrates both the beauty and the essential absurdity of classical ballet.
They return to the UK with a fabulous new programme, Swan Lake Act II/Pas de Deux, Go for Barocco/Raymonda’s Wedding, a lorry load of costume changes and lashings of diva attitude.
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 has made them a global phenomenon since they formed in New York in 1974.
