Kings of the Dance

    “‘Kings of the Dance,’” which was featured at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in October 2011, gathers together, in a bravura showpiece, five of today’s greatest international male ballet dancers: Guillaume Cote of National Ballet of Canada, Marcelo Gomes of American Ballet Theater, David Hallberg of American Ballet Theater and Bolshoi Ballet, Denis Matvienko of Mariinsky [Kirov] Ballet, and Ivan Vasiliev of Bolshoi Ballet. They perform, together and in solos, new ballets specially created for this occasion.”–Photography by Michael Khoury.
