WORLD PREMIERE 

Superstar ballerina Natalia Osipova brings together a handpicked programme of exciting and eclectic dance works. Taking the audience on a journey from the world of classical ballet to contemporary repertoire, Osipova will dance pieces that she has rarely performed in the UK, alongside two brand new works by Alexei Ratmansky and Iván Pérez that have been specially commissioned for the programme.

She will be joined on stage by three dancers, including a very special guest - American Ballet Theatre Principal David Hallberg, continuing their dynamic partnership for the international stage.

"A spirit of joy, of technical bravura, of sheerest delight"
FINANCIAL TIMES on Natalia Osipova
★★★★ "Natalia Osipova deliver star power in full … With powerful technique and huge charisma, Osipova is an instinctively dramatic dancer"
INDEPENDENT
"She astonishes in all the ways you would expect of her. For Osipova is not merely a world-class, instinctive technician (though she is supremely that), but specifically a performer who, by some strange magic, appears to find it easier to be off the ground than on it: the air welcomes and embraces her like no other female dancer I have ever seen. The tiniest skip seems to send her soaring, and yet – however high, far, or fast she jumps – she miraculously manages to land in complete silence” "
