About

Three classic productions showcasing Natalia Osipova are teamed with an insightful documentary.

This special edition box set celebrates the artistry of one of The Royal Ballet’s brightest stars, Natalia Osipova.

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 powerfulness 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. The documentary also features footage from the ballerina’s own archive charting her rise from childhood dancer to superstar ballerina.

“Natalia Osipova, making her debut with the Royal, is, yet again, a revelation.” – The Guardian ***** (Giselle)

“Natalia Osipova’s Giselle is the most radical I’ve ever seen… Acosta partners her with devoted care and responds to her dazzling dancing with renewed sharpness and attack of his own.” – The Independent ***** (Giselle)

“Osipova was riveting throughout... [Golding] demonstrates real brilliance and prowess.” – The Stage (Swan Lake)

“[Osipova] defies gravity more completely and more serenely than any other ballerina I have ever seen. Technically, she is often astounding.”
– The Daily Telegraph **** (La Fille mal gardée)

“A fascinating introduction to this interpretative artist.” – The Guardian **** (Force of Nature Natalia)
