'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.' --Daily Telegraph
'...the arrival of Natalia Osipova at the Royal Ballet should be a cause for national rejoicing: a superb actress and a jaw dropping dancer' --Sunday Times

It takes you from her warming up at the barre to the curtain call. There is, fortunately, almost no text;
the beautiful images say it all.
