Performing en travesti (i.e. in drag), Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo is the world’s premier all-male classical ballet company, and a sight to behold anytime they take the stage. “Keen parody always turns on some level of mastery of the target, and here the Trocks set the standard, with whipping turns…buoyant jumps and, most of all, uncanny speed.” (Chicago Tribune) Their long-awaited debut at the Bandshell will include excerpts from Swan Lake, Pas De Deux, Go for Barocco, Dying Swan, and Paquita—the perfect way to kick off Pride.

The Prospect Park Well House is under reconstruction in order to build a new composting latrine. The park remains open while the building gets reconstructed.
Anticipated Completion: Winter 2015
The Long Meadow Ballfields will be closed at Prospect Park for construction. The reconstruction of the Long Meadow Ballfields is a multi-phase project encompassing 34 acres of fields, paths and woodlands. The project incorporates contemporary storm water management techniques that support our goal of capturing and retaining storm water runoff. These improvements will also help to filter runoff before it enters our watercourse. Designed to revitalize the park’s sporting community, the first phase will restore Field One, pedestrian and bridle paths, drinking fountains, benches, and include new tree plantings.
Anticipated Completion: Summer 2015
Starting July 6, 2015, Prospect Park's West Drive will be permanently car-free after 9 a.m. on weekdays and 24 hours a day on weekends and holidays. For more information, please visit on.nyc.gov/1MOAh40.
