All-male comic ballet troupe coming to Bankhead

Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo will perform at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 31 at the Bankhead Theater, marking not just the first time the famous all-male comic dance troupe has appeared in Livermore, but its only stop in Northern California this season.

Known for their adherence to classical ballet technique, the dancers provide comedy with their exaggeration of the foibles, accidents and underlying incongruities of serious dance. Each dancer transforms into two personas, male and female, as performances froth with tutus and testosterone, blush-pink ballet shoes, fierce false eyelashes and prima ballerina attitude.

Tickets range from $20 for students and active military to $100. Call 373-6800; go to www.lvpac.org; or visit the Bankhead box office at 2400 First St. in Livermore.
