I enjoyed the performance immensely, because these men are not merely kings of dance, but gods. City Center orchestra and front mezzanine are now great locations from which to see a dance performance.
Unfortunately, the choreography these masters had to perform ranged largely from amateur to silly. But I'd show up to watch Ivan Vasiliev cross the street; and two hours with these pros, despite all the finger-wagging and arm-waving, was thrilling.

Kings of the Dance is the BEST dance event and I look forward to it coming around again. I only wish it would be more than once every 2 or 3 years. My only disappointment was that Leonid Sarafanov didn't perform in the NY leg of the tour.
Five years after its world premiere at Segerstrom Center for the Arts and New York City Center, Kings of the Dance returns with an all-new program showcasing the incredible power, athleticism and artistry of today’s most celebrated male ballet stars.
Kings of the Dance: Opus 3 will feature Guillaume Côté of the National Ballet of Canada, Marcelo Gomes of American Ballet Theatre, David Hallberg of American Ballet Theatre and the Bolshoi Ballet, Denis Matvienko of the Mariinsky Ballet and Ivan Vasiliev of the Mikhailovsky Ballet. The men will dance eight New York premieres created by Mauro Bigonzetti, Edward Clug, Patrick De Bana, Nacho Duato, Jorma Elo, Marco Goecke and Marcelo Gomes. The evening will also include a historic collaboration by two of the dancers: a work choreographed by Gomes to music by Côté.
Kings of the Dance: Opus 3, another of the extraordinary dance events for which Ardani Artists is renowned, is a co-production with Segerstrom Center for the Arts. Performances at New York City Center conclude the world tour that started in Moscow and continued in St. Petersburg, Riga, Novosibirsk, Kiev and Orange County.
