"Kings of the Dance" will make its UK debut at the London Coliseum, Wednesday 19th – Saturday 22nd March 2014.

The company showcases some of the best male ballet talent around, including Roberto Bolle from Teatro alla Scala, American Ballet Theatre's reigning stars Marcelo Gomes and Ivan Vasiliev, Denis Matvienko of the Mariinsky Ballet and Leonid Sarafanov of the Mikhailovsky Ballet. They will dance seven diverse pieces from Roland Petit, Patrick De Bana, Nacho Duato, Marco Goecke, Marcelo Gomes and Massimiliano Volpini.

Bolle and Vasiliev will perform Roland Petit's "Le Jeune Homme et la Mort", also featuring Svetlana Lunkina from the Bolshoi Ballet. Sarafanov, Gomes and Matvienko will appear in "Remanso", a work by Nacho Duato, and one that has been performed previously by The Royal Ballet.
