Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo returned to Vancouver with their wonderfully danced, comedic parodies of classical ballet.  The company performed the following pieces:

Act II of Swan Lake – Philip Martin-Nielson was tough and regal as Queen of the Swans.

Patterns in Space – In this Cage / Cunningham tribute, the musicians stole the show.

Dying Swan – Carlos Renedo won us over with his heroic swan.

Pas de Six from Esmeralda – Alberto Pretto captured the fragility and tragedy of Esmeralda.

Don Quixote – Chase Johnsey as Kitri and Matthew Poppe as Basil made a stellar pair!
