Bringing together three classic full-length performances, Giselle, Swan Lake and La fille mal gardée, all filmed at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, this beautiful set shows the versatility and power of Osipova’s performances and showcases the range of her dancing and acting abilities.
Finishing the collection is Force of Nature Natalia which provides unprecedented access and insight into Osipova’s rehearsal process, as she prepares to dance some of classical ballet’s most challenging roles, as well as collaborating with some of the leading choreographers of today on brand new works.
