It’s Ballet like you’ve never seen it before!

Affectionately known as “the Trocks,” the troupe’s repertoire includes a full range of ballet and modern dance performed in faithful renditions. Men dance all the parts, delicately balancing on toes as swans, water sprites, romantic princesses, or angst-ridden Victorian ladies in eye-popping costumes. Whether you’re an aficionado or experiencing ballet for the first time, Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo is boisterous evening of laughter and dance.

17 | The Blind Boys of Alabama

If there’s one word to describe The Blind Boys of Alabama, it’s legendary. The original members first sang together as kids at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in the 1930s and have flourished over the decades. Their unique sound blends the close harmonies of early jubilee gospel with the more fervent improvisations of hard gospel. Today, the Grammy Award-winning group draws from a variety of musical genres, including music by Tom Waits and the Rolling Stones. This live show will be a roof-raising musical event that appeals to audiences of all cultures. The Blind Boys of Alabama have attained the highest levels of achievement in a career that spans over 75 years and shows no signs of diminishing.
