A greatly anticipated return
Superb dancers….and comic geniuses They have travelled the world since their inception in 1974 performing in more than 30 countries and 500 cities, and still continue to garner rave reviews from both audiences and the international press. They combine astounding technique with an entertaining and affectionately irreverent reinterpretation of the great classics of dance.
The Guardian titles it “the funniest evening you’ll ever experience at the ballet”.
Their performance is like no other!
The Boys are Back in Town!
Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo make their anticipated return with a fresh batch of highbrow hilarity, January 20 and 21, 2017 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, following Vancouver’s 2015 sold out smash hit! Brimming with breathtaking artistry and rampant sauciness, the cross-dressing company have been making audiences laugh for more than 40 years with their affectionately irreverent tributes to the classical ballet canon. In their hotly-demanded return, New York’s infamous all-male ballerinas will lovingly skewer such balletic favourites as Swan Lake, La Esmeralda, and Don Quixote with all of their histrionic drama and incessant pantomime. Don’t miss the international dance sensation showcase their extraordinary technical prowess…in size 12 pointe shoes!
