About this event

This fascinating dance documentary follows a year in the life of Natalia Osipova.

An explosively powerful performer, she is considered one of the world’s greatest ever ballet dancers and, going backstage with her at the Royal Opera house, BAFTA award-winning director Gerry Fox follows her as she rehearses some of her most challenging roles yet: ‘La Bayadère’ at the Royal Ballet; Arthur Pita’s Hans Christian Andersen retelling ‘The Mother’; and an experimental new duet created with Osipova’s fiancé Jason Kittelberger. Featuring unseen clips from her personal archive as well as career highlights, this is a rare, riveting and beautiful insight into the life and work of the world’s leading ballerina.

“a fascinating introduction to this interpretative artist” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
