Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo
Friday October 10 and Saturday October 11
$40 orchestra/$34 mezzanine/$15 students and kids
Co-presented with Jacob's Pillow Dance
Combining a wicked comic sense of humor with a devoted respect and true talent for classical dance, the all-male, 16-member “Clown Princes of Ballet” dance the fine line between high art and high camp. Presented with Jacob’s Pillow, the “Trocks” whom the San Francisco Chronicle calls “one of the great comic creations of the American stage,” perform parodies of ballet cornerstones complete with gargantuan toe shoes and lacy tutus. They are turbo-charged ballerinas with amazing flexibility, the strength of well-trained men, and the ability to spin like tops. The Austin Chronicle raves, “They shine with such a decidedly self-deprecating brilliance that one can't help but laugh with them and adore them.” Galleries open until 7 PM both nights.
