From the thrilling pirouettes of the male dancers in drag combined with brilliant and innovative choreography to the side splitting humour - and all with lavish costumes - comes Victor Trevino's hit Men in Pink Tights.
This is a show designed for male, female, young and old. This production is the ultimate send up of both classical and contemporary ballet. The combination of brilliant dancing technique, tongue in cheek and blatant humour with intentional foibles, dancing mishaps and of course hissy fits by men playing both male and female roles creates great entertainment.
Les Ballets Eloelle's Men in Pink Tights boasts over fifty classical ballets in its repertoire and twenty of the best international male ballet dancers from 13 countries. These handsome and beautiful soloists have performed with the following renowned ballet companies - Houston Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Ballet Alberta of Canada, Scapino Ballet, Martha Graham Dance Company, New York City Ballet, Metropolitan Opera Ballet, Les Jeune Ballet De France, to name a few.
The programme will include the company's signature work with the cast bringing their own brand of humour to the roles - featuring duets from both classical and neo-classical origins showcasing a combination of pyrotechnics and comedy, while adhering to the spirit of the originals. They include Spartacus, Romeo and Juliet, La Corsaire and The Dying Swan.
Suitable for all ages.
