  "Visceral, emotional intensity blended with impressive technical excellence"

Following the summer world premiere, Natalia Osipova returns due to popular demand, once again joined by Sergei Polunin in this unique opportunity to see the two dancing together in the UK.

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.

 ★★★★ "Her exceptional suppleness and strength create the illusion that she's walking, flying or hovering over her partners' bodies"

The programme, Natalia Osipova’s first ever commission, features new contemporary work inspired by this unique dancer from Sadler’s Wells Associate Artists Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Russell Maliphant, alongside Royal Opera House regular Arthur Pita.
