 "The Trocks deliver a heady mix of high art and comedy, while preserving the magic of ballet." ~THE GLOBE AND MAIL

"Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo...remains one of the great comic creations of the American stage." ~SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, the world's foremost all-male comic ballet professional company,
celebrates 46 years of playful classical ballet en travesty.

Affectionately called "the Trocks," the company performs delightful parodies of great ballet classics
with technical proficiency-revealing men can, indeed, dance en pointe with size 11 pointe shoes, wear tutus
and execute precision pirouettes and fouette turns with testosterone-fueled energy-a tour de force of male
expertise that draws near sell-out crowds consistently. Diversity is the theme for both the Trocks and the audience who comes to watch barriers broken--dancing and performing the women's parts en pointe. New Yorker critic Arlene Croce asserted that the Trocks weren't addressing gender roles, but ballet roles, an altogether different topic..."a ballerina isn't a woman but an abstraction of one."

Sponsored in part by the Class of '64 Performing Arts Fund.
