The "Trocks" in NYC: Lashes, Tutus and Extra-Large Pointe Shoes
Tuesday, December 14, 2010
The New York City-based ballet company "Les Ballets de Trockadero de Monte Carlo" kicked off a three-week season of ballet and comedy on Tuesday night, with extra-large pointe shoes poised to crack up audiences. With a spare elbow and some classic prima donna mugging en travesti, the company will perform pieces from ballet repertoire such as "Swan Lake" and Merce Cunningham's seminal "Patterns in Space."
