Ballet Eloelle is bringing their new production Men in Pink Tights to Australia - the most spectacular, talented and hilarious all-male comedy ballet ever.

From the thrilling pirouettes of the male dancers (in male and female costumes) with brilliant choreography, to the side-splitting humour, Ballet Eloelle's new show Men in Pink Tights is a show designed for the young and old.

The greatest troupe of its kind around the globe, Ballet Eloelle features over fifty ballets in its repertoire and an array of the best international professional male ballet dancers from thirteen nations.

These fine-looking and gorgeous soloists have executed with celebrated ballet companies including the New York Ballet, The American Ballet Theatre, the prestigious Royal Ballet, Paris Opera Ballet, The National Ballet of Canada, The Royal Swedish Ballet, Berlin State Opera Ballet, English National Ballet, Joffrey Ballet and Hong Kong Ballet.

The New York-based company is led by creative director and lead dancer Victor Trevino, who was artistic director and lead dancer in 2007 with the hugely successful Australian and New Zealand tour of Men in Tutus. Ballet Eloelle's Men In Pink Tights personifies the elemental parody of both classic and present-day ballet.

Magnificent dance proficiency, bantering and clamorous wittiness is combined with designed mannerisms, dance misadventures and naturally outrageous hissy-fits by gentlemen role-playing both masculine and feminine personas. Just about all of the gentlemen act, and in reality appear like beautiful ladies, although others are furry-chested adult males with flapcake make-up - but all stylish in tights and tutus and dancing on perfect pointe.

Men in Pink Tights produces bang-up amusement and Laugh Out Loud family entertainment for all. Be truly amazed.

"It is not a drag show, but a brilliant artistic and comical send up of the world of dance." - USA Today
