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 Antony Tudor’s The Leaves are Fading and Roy Assaf’s Six Years Later, alongside three brand new works: two duets by Alexei Ratmansky and Iván Pérez, and a solo by Yuka Oishi 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. Hallberg will also perform a new solo by Kim Brandstrup.

The programme will include:

The Leaves are Fading by Antony Tudor: danced by Natalia and David Hallberg
Flutter by Ivan Perez: danced by Natalia Osipova and Jonathan Goddard
Valse Triste by Alexei Ratmansky: danced by Natalia Osipova and David Hallberg
Six Years Later by Roy Assaf: danced by Natalia Osipova and Jason Kittelberger
In Absentia by Kim Brandstrup: danced by David Hallberg
Ave Maria by Yuka Oishi: danced by Natalia Osipova

"A spirit of joy, of technical bravura, of sheerest delight"
FINANCIAL TIMES on Natalia Osipova
★★★★ "Natalia Osipova delivers star power in full … With powerful technique and huge charisma, Osipova is an instinctively dramatic dancer"
"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” "
