Men in Pink Tights and Men in Tutus are the same show with the same dancers and the same dance programme. They use the different names due to trademark issues in different countries.
Their show is artistically brillant as well as being outrageously funny . They are one of only three all male ballet companies in the world who perform as female ball;erinas. The other ones are Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo and the St Petersburg Male Ballet. This dance company has been hailed by critics as “The greatest exponents of all male comedy ballet in the world today”.
From the thrilling pirouettes of the male dancers (in male and female costumes) with brilliant choreography to the side splitting humour, all presented in $2 million of costumes, Men in Tutus is a show designed for all genders and ages.
These handsome and beautiful soloists have performed with renowned ballet companys including Russia’s Bolshoi and Kirov Ballets, New York Ballet, Paris Opera Ballet, The American Ballet Theatre, the prestigious Royal Ballet, The National Ballet of Canada, The Royal Swedish Ballet, Berlin State Opera Ballet, English National Ballet, Royal Danish Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, Hong Kong Ballet to name a few.
Men in Pink Tights/ Men In Tutus with their sell out tours are the order of the day and such is their popularity in Japan, that bodyguards are required to protect them from the hordes of adoring female fans, who worship “men in makeup”.
Men in Pink Tights/Men In Tutus is the ultimate send up of both classical and contemporary ballet.The combination of brilliant dancing technique, tongue in cheek and blatant humour with intentional foibles, dancing mishaps and of course hissy fits by men playing both male and female roles (some of the men do actually look like gorgeous women, while others are hairy chested men with pancake makeup but all in tutus etc. dancing on Pointe) creates great entertainment.
