There’s also Go for Barocco, a slinky salute to ballet god George Balanchine's minimalism and a mystery pas de deux. The humor in the show comes not from the group's cross-dressing efforts but from the ultra-serious attitude with which it approaches the work. Karen Watassek, director of public relations for the Society for the Performing Arts, the organization hosting today's performance, says Les Ballets Trockadero is one of her favorite groups. ''People 'get' what they're doing,'' Watassek says. ''It's parody, but they really are classically trained dancers. They just do it with flair.'' 8 p.m. Jones Hall for the Performing Arts, 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-227-4772 or visit spahouston.org. $35 to $85.
