Part Goofy, Part Glorious, All Man
The first thing you should know about Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo’s current engagement at the Joyce Theater is that there isn’t a nutcracker in sight. The second is that a stage filled with snow isn’t all there is to the notion of seasonal festiveness.  This superb male group, known as the Trocks, appeared in all of its mallerina glory — that is, man plus ballerina — on Friday in a program of repertory works that included “Les Lac des Cygnes” (“Swan Lake,” Act II), as well as the New York premieres, both staged by Elena Kunikova, of the pas d’action from “Harlequinade” (1997) and “Valpurgeyeva Noch” (or “Walpurgisnacht”) from 2009............

Never really had any interest in ballet. Although I do have a dvd of that Black Swan movie I may watch later.
