Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, affectionately known as “The Trocks,” are returning to the McLean Community Center’s Alden Theatre this Thursday, March 5, at 7:30 p.m. for one night only. Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, a dynamic and delightful ballet troupe, is celebrating its 40th anniversary season.

Founded in 1974 by a group of ballet enthusiasts who wanted to present playful, entertaining view of traditional, classic ballet in parody form and en travesty, The Trocks quickly gained acclaim in New York City, where they are based.

“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,” said a press release sent out by The Alden about the performance. Tickets for the performance are $40 for McLean tax district residents and $50 for everyone else. For more information or to buy tickets, visit aldentheatre.org or call 703-790-0123.
