Les Ballets Trockadero De Monte Carlo

Are you seeking something culturally enriching to do in Ashe County? How about the ballet?

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo is coming to Boone! Les Ballets Trockadero was founded in 1974 by a group of ballet enthusiasts for the purpose of presenting a playful, entertaining view of traditional, classical ballet in parody form and en travesty. The Trocks, as they are affectionately known, is a company of professional male dancers performing the full range of the ballet and modern dance repertoire, including classical and original works in faithful renditions of the manners and conceits of those dance styles.

Here’s what the New York Times has to say about this ballet company: “The Trocks are looking better than ever. … It was ballet that would probably delight all who miss ballet as it once was. There was nary a modern dance step or gesture in sight, in dancing filled with the kind of infectious passion and triumph the Bolshoi Ballet once brought to the Stage… Their program of grand ballet is as much food for the mind as it is for the eye and the funny bone.”

Since the beginning, the Trocks have established themselves as a major dance phenomenon throughout the world. They have participated in dance festivals in Turkey, Bogota, Holland, Finland, San Luis Potosi, Madrid, Montreal, New York City, Paris, Lyon, Rome, Spoleto, Turin, and Vienna. There have been television appearances as varied as a Shirley MacLaine special, the “Dick Cavett Show,” “What’s My Line?” “Real People,” “On-Stage America,” with Kermit and Miss Piggy on their show “Muppet Babies,” and a BBC Omibus special on the world of ballet hosted by Jennifer Saunders. There have been solo specials on national networks in Japan and Germany, as well as a French television special with Julia Migenes.
