Natalia Osipova: Pure Dance Tickets

London Ballet & Dance
Natalia Osipova returns to Sadler's Wells with acclaimed show Pure Dance backed by popular demand.
After performances in New York and Lyon, Natalia Osipova's Pure Dance returns. The Royal Ballet principal will dance a handpicked programme of classical and contemporary works, including Antony Tudor’s The Leaves are Fading and Roy Assaf’s newly extended Six Years Later, alongside three pieces that have been specially commissioned for this programme, duets by Alexei Ratmansky and Iván Pérez, and a solo by Yuka Oishi. Osipova will be joined on stage by a very special guest, American Ballet Theatre principal David Hallberg, who will also perform a specially commissioned solo by Kim Brandstrup. Just announced, the eclectic programme includes a new duet, Left Behind, choreographed by Jason Kittelberger and danced by Osipova and Kittelberger. Inspired by the emotional quality of its Rachmaninov soundtrack, the duet explores the notion that a person’s effect on a life can never fully be understood until that person is gone. Kittelberger also appears alongside Osipova in Israeli choreographer Roy Assaf’s Six Years Later – now extended for this year’s programme. Jonathan Goddard completes the company, joining Osipova in Flutter, choreographed by Rose D'Or and Golden Prague award-winner (for BalletBoyz’ Young Men) Iván Pérez, set to music by Nico Muhly.

    An amazing and brilliant show. Creative contemporary dance taking the audience through a journey of love loss and pain by professional dancers of the highest calibre. Bravo

    Only for true dance lovers. A great mix of contemporary dance and classic ballet. Osipova definitely shows her creativity as well as her amazing ballerina skills. Really impressed with the show, although live music would have made it an all-rounder

    It was not difficult to use, It was easy to find a suitable seat within my price budget.

    Interesting but all those pauses was new for me and I could not really feel a consistency and connect, I was sitting to far also could not see their faces and expressions. Live music would be a plus ;)

    Natalia Osipova is undeniably a beautiful dancer. Unfortunately the contemporary dance pieces looked more like improvisations on stage. A rather disjointed and fragmented programme. Too many breaks. Travelled a long way to see this and it was disappointing.

    A wonderful evening of a dancer who is breathtaking, sensual and sensitive in both modern and classical dance.

    The show was full of really original material blending traditional and new art & dance forms. It was a pleasure to what each ‘act’ and the style was really refreshing. Having a break between each dance routine allowed us to savour each one with its unique attributes and emotional pulls!

    Amazing performance

  • Review Avatar Oct 27, 2019

    Poor selection of ‘pure dance’ especially the first one in second half - bumping shoulders together is not ‘dance.’ I Travelled from Bristol to see Natalia and was disappointed. Please provide top class, international, excellence.

    My Partner absolutely adores Natalia Osipova and was absolutely amazed at Natalia's performance. We went both Friday and Saturday and though the performance and dances were the same we thoroughly enjoyed both nights. Natalia's skill is truly spectacular, She very kindly spared some time after the show at the back stage door to talk to my Partner and sign photos and the programme. Thanks Natalia you are a lovely kind woman.
