Get set for an uproarious and exhilarating night out this November.

New York’s internationally renowned, all-male, professional comedy ballet company, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, returns to Brighton Dome with its brilliantly playful take on some of ballet’s best loved works.

‘The Trocks’ will once again be presenting their inspired blend of technical prowess, bravura, and side-splitting comedy, with dancers Ida Nevasayneva, Olga Supphozova and Lariska Dumbchenko performing alongside their broad-shouldered and sometimes hairy-chested fellow ballerinas, bringing athleticism and grace to the stage while wearing up to size 12 pointe shoes. Yes, these men can really dance en pointe without falling flat on their faces.

The Trocks’ return marks the company’s fourteenth visit to the UK and follows extensive tours of Europe and Japan in spring and summer 2015.

Their Brighton programme will include Swan Lake (Act II), the Merce Cunningham-inspired Patterns in Space, the Balanchine style Go For Barocco, and the UK premiere of the Trock’s new Don Quixote.
