For the first time ever, the world-famous "Les Ballet Trockadero de Monte Carlo" is coming to Estonia.

For the first time ever, the world-famous "Les Ballet Trockadero de Monte Carlo" is coming to Estonia with one of its best programs, which among other iconic classical ballet gems includes the second act from Tchaikovsky’s "Swan Lake". Undoubtedly this program will win the hearts of the audience with its virtuosity and sparkling humor, and lift everyones spirits with lots of positive energy.

„The Trocks“, as the company is lovingly called, was founded in 1974 by a group of ballet enthusiasts who wanted to entertain with humorous versions of the classical repertoire whith men performing all the roles . It all started Off-Off-Broadway in New York City, where they performed to small audiences and were met with overwhelming enthusiasm by critics and crowds alike. Since then, The Trocks have established themselves as a major dance phenomenon throughout the world, their frenzied annual schedule has included appearances in over 35 countries and over 600 cities worldwide, and accompanied everywhere by resounding success, they were even applauded by Queen  ElizabethII and King Charles III.

The troupe's diverse repertoire includes many fragments from famous classical ballets such as „Swan Lake“, „Paquita“, „The Nutcracker“, „Don Quixote“, „Giselle“, as well as a skillful parody of some choreographers such as Balanchine, Robbins, Cunningham.  All numbers are staged with a delicate taste and thought out to the smallest detail, even their stage names are the names of the great ballerinas of the past and present, altered with deliberate "typos". Each "celebrity" has its own role, temperament, favorite stamps, tricks, habits, manners, and according to experts, in some elements like jumps, turns, thoroughness in performing various nuances they even surpass the ballerinas they parody.

The Trocks company was conceived for the glory of classical ballet and their goal is to present to the audience a humorous look at traditional classical ballet, balancing on the edge of high art and high comedy, and judging by the reviews of viewers and critics around the world, they do it perfectly! And here are just a some of them:

 

 “An international treasure.” The Stage

 

“The Trocks may show you how to laugh at ballet, but they also teach you to love it.”

The New York Post

 

- It is impossible to describe my deep fascination with ballet "Trockadero". This is the highest pilotage. To have the right to laugh at something, you have to own it perfectly.

 

- Their show is a unique ballet comedy. My friends, this is not just ballet. This is an order of magnitude higher! These are magnificent, beautiful, indescribable concert numbers of surprisingly talented people.

 

- Merry hooliganism! Indescribable delight, indelible impressions and good memory for many years

 

Revered by ballet aficionados as well as the uninitiated—those who don’t know a plié from a jeté—the Trocks are “a guaranteed hoot for people who know nothing of ballet and an absolute must for those who think they know the originals.” Sydney Star Observer.

 

“The magic of Les Ballets Trockadero De Monte Carlo is guaranteed to warm any frozen heart that dares to walk into their show.” Nadia Vostrikov, Ballet Herald

 

“We came to laugh, but we stayed to worship.”

Louise Levene, The Telegraph, London
