Returning after a rapturous sell-out 2010 appearance, Les Ballets
Trockadero de Monte Carlo remains one of the most popular
dance troupes in the United States. The company of professional
male dancers performs the full range of the ballet and modern dance
repertoire, achieving high comedy by incorporating and exaggerating
the foibles, accidents and underlying incongruities of serious dance.
The fact that men dance all the parts—heavy bodies delicately balancing
on toes as swans, sylphs, water sprites, romantic princesses or
angst-ridden Victorian ladies—enhances, rather than mocks, the
spirit of dance as an art form, delighting and amusing novices
and aficionados alike.
