Review: Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo at Wales Millennium Centre
It was so lovely to have a night out at Wales Millennium Centre last night. The staff are always so warm and welcoming, and it’s a joy to attend any of their events!
Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo is a production based on classic ballet, with three sections and two intervals. The performances include Les Syphides, Harlequinade Pas De Deux, Trovatiara Pas De Cinq, Dying Swan and Paquita.
Having only seen a handful of ballets in my 36 years, I kind of knew what to expect, but I’m certainly no expert! I think if you’re new to ballet then it’s a good show to start with.
The performers are completely out of this world, with balance and talent defying the rules of what we presume to be normal for ballet. I absolutely love the how the show breaks the mould in terms of gender stereotyping (I’m a big fan of this!).
Each dancer performed with such ? talent, their delicate jumps and spins shocking the audience. It was such an honour to see them break the boundaries of the ‘norm’ in ballet, with humour dotted throughout. The audience was either laughing or in awe at the remarkable performances.
I personally didn’t take to the comedy, but I’m a hard one to crack when it comes to humour. However, I did find some areas of the performance completely breathtaking. The Dying Swan made me feel quite emotional, even with the humorous elements, Robert Carter as Olga Supphozova was mesmerising and completely took my breath away.
With a mixture of comedy, superb costume, beautiful music and talent without bounds, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo at Wales Millennium Centre is a fun and mesmerising show.
