present, promote and produce dance in Hawaii
Ballet Hawaii proudly presents Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo at 4 pm on Sunday, January 17, 2016 at Hawaii Theatre Center. The Sunday Times (London) writes that it’s “The funniest night you will ever have at the ballet,” and the TROCKS, as they are affectionately known, never disappoint. Under the guiding principle of their original purpose – to bring the pleasure of dance to the widest possible audience – The Trocks are a delight for ballet aficionados and newcomers alike. Tickets start from $39 and are on sale now at the Hawaii Theatre Box Office.
Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo 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 (literally “disguised”). Les Ballets Trockadero first performed in the late-late shows in Off-Off Broadway lofts. Since those beginnings, the Trocks have established themselves as a major dance phenomenon throughout the world. According to The Seattle Times, “This is a company that brings its audiences pure joy.”
No city can be great without culture and the arts. And to make a city loved by its people, it must be lovable since no city can be complete without dance.― Frank Fasi, Former Mayor, City & County of Honolulu
