This time the names of her collaborators are mouth-watering. The American Ballet Theatre Principal David Hallberg, himself a superstar, who rates Osipova as one of his favourite partners, will join her in two pieces.
Antony Tudor’s Leaves Are Falling, which dates from 1975, is an essentially abstract pas de deux, which nevertheless leaves plenty of room for audiences and interpreters to add their reading. It’ll be fascinating to see what Osipova and Hallberg do with it.
The pair will also dance a new piece especially created for them by one of the most exciting and exacting choreographers working today: Alexei Ratmansky.
Two other works complete the programme: Six Year Later, by the Israeli choreographer Roy Assaf, and an especially commissioned piece from Iván Pérez, whose work was seen most recently at Sadler’s Wells in the BalletBoyz’ Fourteen Days mixed bill.
It’s likely other dancers will take part in Osipova’s Pure Dance – we’ll let you know as soon we know.
Osipova’s superstar status guarantees her programmes sell out quickly, so book early to avoid disappointment.
