Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo

Tue Dec 17 - Sun Jan 5

For three weeks this holiday season, enter the satirical, skilled, and slapstick corner of the ballet world with Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo! The company returns to The Joyce celebrating its 50th anniversary as the world’s foremost gender-skewing comic ballet company. Parodying the conventions of romantic and classical ballet with hilarious reimaginings, The Trocks are sure to deliver “the funniest night you’ll have at the ballet” (The Guardian). With two unforgettable programs, highlights include the New York premiere of Durante Verzola's Symphony, inspired by George Balanchine's Symphony in C, as well as Giselle (Act 2), Raymonda’s Wedding, Swan Lake (Act 2), and more!
