About the Event
Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo brings its internationally beloved troupe of male dancers to Scottsdale to perform a brilliant combination of skillful pointe work and hilarious parodying of classical ballet favorites like Swan Lake. According to The Guardian, it’s “the funniest night you’ll ever have at the ballet!”
Founded in New York City in 1974, the company, affectionately known as the Trocks, began by appearing in late-late shows in off-off-Broadway lofts for small audiences who appreciated the iconoclastic humor of it all. In the nearly 50 years since then, the company has grown to achieve great appeal among more mainstream audiences who, each season, flock to theaters throughout the world to see these prima ballerinas perform. “The amalgam of ballerina finesse and daft diva antics is brilliant, unsettling, riveting: the epitome of Trocks style” (Alastair Macaulay, The New York Times).
Revered by ballet aficionados as well as the uninitiated—those who don’t know a plié from a jeté—the Trocks are “a guaranteed hoot for people who know nothing of ballet and an absolute must for those who think they know the originals” (Sydney Star Observer).
“Not afraid to play to the house, they conspire with us to pay homage to tradition even while giving it a kick in the tutu.” — Elizabeth Zimmer, The Village Voice
