Like so many of you, I've been eagerly awaiting Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo's eighth appearance at the Carpenter Center. Their performance this Saturday, February 3, promises to be especially wonderful—the all-male comic ballet company is celebrating their 50th anniversary season!
From their humble off-off-Broadway beginnings to their worldwide acclaim, the company is such a pleasure to share with all of you. Don't miss favorites from their repertoire this Saturday, including selections from Swan Lake and Paquita. If you've never caught a Trocks' performance before, get your tickets now for a hilarious night you won't soon forget!
Following The Trocks' appearance, February marks the calm before the storm—Storm Large that is. The vocal powerhouse kicks off a whirlwind of shows next month with a performance both intimate and intoxicating (March 6 & 7). The fun continues on March 9 as pop culture icon Charo astounds with her flamenco guitar playing. Then, on March 15*, the Carpenter Center is jazz central as Grammy-winning saxophonist Branford Marsalis and the Branford Marsalis Quartet return for an evening of stunning syncopation and phenomenal virtuosity.
There's even more music and dance coming next month. Discover the full February/March calendar of events below!
