WIN TICKETS to Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo

Show One Productions presents the anticipated return of the world famous, all-male ballet company Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo (Trocks), onstage February 1, 2020 at 8pm at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.

This sensational performance will showcase the Trocks’ wickedly absurd antics and serious dancing chops — featuring sly send-ups of beloved ballet classics and contemporary works. Infused with a heavy dose of highbrow hilarity, this antic-laden evening will offer audiences a chance to experience high-powered diva energy as the men strut their stuff in size 11 pointe shoes.

The ensemble’s legendary comedy emerges by incorporating and exaggerating the foibles, accidents, and underlying incongruities of serious dance. The fact that men dance all the parts — bodies delicately balancing en pointe as swans, sylphs, water sprites, romantic princesses, and angst-ridden Victorian ladies — enhances, rather than mocks, the spirit of dance as an art form, delighting and amusing both dance connoisseurs and novice audiences alike.

Today the Trocks have performed in more than 30 countries and 500 cities worldwide, including Amsterdam, Auckland, Barcelona, Beijing, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, London, Moscow (at the famed Bolshoi Theater), Paris (at the Chatelet Theater), Rome, Sydney, Tokyo, and Vienna.

The Vancouver program will include the company’s perennial mainstay Swan Lake, alongside Pas de Quatre, Dying Swan, and the Vancouver premiere of the contemporary work titled Walspurgisnacht, which was inspired by the Bolshoi Ballet and features music from the opera Faust. Other modern works will be announced from the stage.
