Ballet’s very-grandes dames ‘The Trocks’ are back!


With one foot in farce and the other in classical ballet, the all-male company, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo (or ‘The Trocks’ to their friends) return to The Lowry after their last sell-out run.  

No one is quite sure what to expect when you first come to see The Trocks…can ballet really be that funny? After seeing the company twice I can assuredly say yes it can – it is one of the funniest nights I’ve ever had in the theatre. Their combination of comedy, extraordinary skill and genuine love of ballet has made The Trocks a global phenomenon.

Guaranteed to make you smile, giggle or cry with laughter The Trocks are a perfect cure to the post-Christmas blues this January.

Take a look at a video we created when we met up with The Trocks ahead of their visit: 

The Trocks are performing at The Lowry Tue 29 and Wed 30 January 2013.
