An Evening with Natalia Osipova is available to watch on the Sadler's Wells Facebook page from Friday 24 April at 7.30pm BST. It will be made available to view for seven days on Facebook and YouTube.

Revisit some of Natalia Osipova’s most captivating moments, showcasing the versatility, nuance and intensity of one of the world’s foremost ballet stars.

This evening will be made up of the “ravishing six-minute ballet” (New York Times) Valse Triste specially created for Osipova and American Ballet Theatre principal David Hallberg by Alexei Ratmansky, as well as the beautifully emotive Ave Maria by Japanese choreographer Yuka Oishi set to the music of Schubert. Both works originally featured in Pure Dance at Sadler’s Wells, a collection of seven classical & contemporary masterpieces, handpicked by Natalia.

The programme will also feature Qutb, a uniquely complex and intimate work by Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, which premiered in 2016. Performing alongside acclaimed dancers Jason Kittelberger and James O’Hara, this sensational collaboration is a showcase of the technique, energy and precision which feature throughout Natalia’s work.
