To the delight and amusement of their faithful followers, the 15-strong all-male dancers of Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo have brought a new spin to classical ballet, with much loved works such as Swan Lake, The Dying Swan and Paquita, parodied and performed like no other company. Their 28 -year history of interpreting classical roles has no rival on the international stage. With dazzling technique and outrageous humor, the ‘Trocks" appeal to anyone who has ever been confused about the plot of Swan Lake. All the glory of the traditional world of dance is here; the glamour of the costumes and the nostalgia for the past but sent up in hilarious style.
"Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo arrived at City Centre Tuesday night...and it was a triumphant return for the all-male dance company. If there had been a laugh-meter in the house, it would have gone into orbit."
