Four of the most prominent classical dancers on Western stages gather for "Kings of the Dance" this weekend at the Orange County Performing Arts Center. No Parisians or Cubans are on the roster, which immediately makes the event incomplete, but expect plenty of firepower from Angel Corella (American Ballet Theatre), Johan Kobborg (Royal Ballet), Ethan Stiefel (ABT) and Nikolai Tsiskaridze (the Bolshoi Ballet).

Imagine watching the largest modern dance corps you've ever seen not only move in perfect unison but breathe as one. Imagine looking closer to find each member a world-class soloist: physically eloquent and deeply involved emotionally. Imagine not imagining such phenomenal dancers but seeing them at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in works by a modernist master.
