Les Ballet Trockadero De Monte Carlo, known as “The Trocks,” is an all male ballet company that performs classical ballet with a comic twist. They perform Saturday night at 8 p.m. at George Mason University’s Center for the Arts in Fairfax.

The program for the evening features “ChopEniana,” an “abstract” classical ballet without narrative structure and defined characters, set to music by Chopin. The evening also features “Go for Barocco,” a piece set to Bach, inspired by works by Balanchine; as well as “Walpurgis Night,” a piece inspired by the Bolshoi Ballet’s revered work, “Valpurgeyeva Noch,” set to music by Charles Gounod. The company will also perform a modern work, to be announced.

All the dancers are openly gay. Tickets are $24, $40 and $48. Call 888-945-2468 or visit cfa.gmu.edu for tickets.
