    For almost 50 years, the all-male comedy ballet company Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo (affectionately known as “The Trocks”) have been delighting audiences of all ages at sell-out performances featuring their fabulous sense of fun and their flawless dance.

    Originally from New York, the Trocks are now loved world-wide for their sassy spoofs and hilarious homages to classical ballet, where 16 dancers each transform into two personas, both male and female!

    Every performance frivolously froths with tutus and testosterone, blush-pink ballet pumps, fierce false eyelashes and prima ballerina attitude. However, what makes this company extraordinarily special is their immaculate technique and daring physicality, surpassed only by their impeccable comic timing.

    Tickets are priced at £30-£38 and discounts are not available.

    To book, call the Box Office on 01298 72190 or buy online.

    Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo at Buxton Opera House – Friday 7 & Saturday 8 October 

    The iconic Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo – affectionately known as The Trocks – are back in the UK. Their latest show was greeted by 5-star reviews and standing ovations when it opened at London’s Peacock Theatre earlier this month and they arrive in Buxton next week.

    The Trocks are loved world-wide for their hilarious homages and sassy spoofs of classical ballet. Their impeccable comic timing is matched by their immaculate technique and daring physicality. Every show froths with tutus and testosterone, blush-pink ballet shoes, false eyelashes and prima ballerina attitude! The company’s 16 extraordinary dancers – who hail from China, Cuba, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the US – take on a kaleidoscope of roles, both male and female. Each dancer has their own performer alter egos including Olga Supphozova, Jacques D’Aniels, Holly Dey-Abroad, Minnie Van Driver, Timur Legupski and Ludmila Beaulemova.

    The trailblazing company started life in 1974 as a downtown New York drag act in the wake of the Stonewall Riots. Since then, they have shared their signature style and message of equality and inclusion with audiences worldwide, providing a stage for dancers often under-represented in ballet, whether that be due to sexual orientation, gender identity, size, class, race or ethnicity. As company dancer Kevin Garcia says: “Every time the curtain opens, we represent progress for equality. We just do it dancing.”

    The programme in Buxton opens with The Trocks’ signature work Le Lac des Cygnes (Swan Lake Act II) danced to Tchaikovsky’s iconic music for what is perhaps the world’s best-known ballet. Then comes a mystery pas de deux announced from the stage on the night. Next up is Vivaldi Suite, the company’s glorious celebration of one of the 20th century’s most influential choreographers, George Balanchine. Finally comes Raymonda’s Wedding, the traditionally confusing divertissements from the final act of ‘Raymonda’. A ballet in three acts and fifteen scenes, ‘Raymonda’ has baffled audiences since its premiere at the Mariinsky Theatre in 1898.  With choreography after Marius Petipa, The Trocks ignore all the plot intrigues and go straight for the happy ending!

    This is The Trocks’ seventeenth visit to the UK and their sixth tour presented by Dance Consortium, an 18-strong group of large-scale venues in the UK and Ireland with a mission to tour a diverse range of international dance companies to a nationwide audience.
