Tutus, Tights and Testosterone—The Trocks Return to The Alden

 

March 5 02/26/15, McLean, VA—Back by popular demand after three seasons, the dynamic and delightful ballet dancers in drag, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, return to The Alden in McLean. The troupe will perform one night only on Thursday, Mar. 5, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $50, $40 for McLean tax district residents. The Alden is located at 1234 Ingleside Avenue, inside the McLean Community Center. 

 

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo is celebrating its 40th anniversary season. It was founded in 1974 by a group of ballet enthusiasts for the purpose of presenting a playful, entertaining view of traditional, classical ballet in parody form and en travesty.“The Trocks” as they are affectionately known, quickly garnered a major critical essay by Arlene Croce in The New Yorker, and combined with reviews in The New York Times and The Village Voice, established the company as an artistic and popular success.  The Trocks’ inspired blend of a loving knowledge of dance, their comic approach and the astounding fact that men can, indeed, dance—en pointe—without falling flat on their faces, has been embraced and noted around the world. 

 

Tickets are on sale now. For more information or to purchase tickets online, visit: www.aldentheatre.org or call 703-790-0123, TTY: 711.
