The boys are back and on point with another lighthearted tribute to the oft-stodgy world of ballet. The all-male Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo take a somewhat Elizabethan approach to dance: all the roles are performed, and quite competently too, by men—professionals who finally get to strap on the toe shoes and tutus and give the daintier Giselles a run for their money. The one-night program at the Harris salutes dance both classical (no Trock performance would feel complete without the action-packed second-act battle from “Swan Lake”) and modern; this show includes a riff on Merce Cunningham’s “Points in Space.” Also on the program is “La Vivandiere Pas de Six” inspired by Arthur Saint Leon and Majisimas, staged with choreography by Raffaele Morra.
