This autumn the fabulous, award-winning, scene-stealing Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo (or ‘The Trocks’ to their friends), storm back into London for two glittering weeks… in size 12 pointe shoes.

Hurtling through the classical ballet repertoire with their inimitable blend of skill, grace and a wit as sharp as scissors en pointe, The Trocks have been a global phenomenon since they formed in New York in 1974.

★★★★★ "One of the funniest evenings you’ll ever spend in the theatre"
Time Out

Dancers, including Ida Nevasyneva and Olga Supphozova, present two programmes which effortlessly display their startling technical prowess and their no-less extraordinary make-up skills.

This programme (Programme One) features:
The show-stopping Swan Lake (Act II)
Pas de deux
The Russian classic Paquita
Esmeralda

Programme Two includes Merce Cunningham-inspired Patterns in Space, Go For Barocco, a satire on Balanchine’s choreography, Les Sylphides and the UK premiere of Don Quixote. Read more.

★★★★ "Highbrow hilarity from New York’s marvellous all-male ballerinas. Priceless"
Sunday Telegraph

As the darlings of the ballet world, The Trocks combine a genuine love of ballet with parody and preening in their laugh-a-minute shows that will delight both The Trocks initiated and ballet novices.
