ARTS San Antonio presents Les Ballet Trockadero de Monte Carlo. Founded in 1974 for the purpose of presenting a playful, entertaining view of traditional, classical ballet in parody form, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo quickly garnered major attention. The original concept of Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo has not changed. It 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.
The comedy is achieved 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. $29, $44, $69 and $110
