Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui / Russell Maliphant / Arthur Pita - Natalia Osipova

Multi award-winning Russian classical ballerina Natalia Osipova is a major star in the dance world. She started formal ballet training at age 8, joining the Bolshoi Ballet at age 18 and dancing many of the art form's biggest roles. After leaving the Bolshoi in 2011, she joined American Ballet Theatre as a guest dancer and later the Mikhailovsky Ballet. She joined The Royal Ballet as a principal in 2013 after her guest appearance in Swan Lake. Osipova will be joined by Sergei Polunin for these performances.

For this brand new production, Natalia Osipova experiments with the contemporary genre as she strives for new ways of artistic expression. The programme, the first ever to be commissioned by her, features new work inspired by this unique dancer, by three contemporary choreographers: Sadler's Wells Associate Artists Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Russell Maliphant, alongside Opera House regular Arthur Pita.
