"A SPIRIT OF JOY, OF TECHNICAL BRAVURA, OF SHEEREST DELIGHT"

Financial Times (UK)

In Pure Dance, international ballet star Natalia Osipova offers a handpicked program of classical and contemporary works, featuring several US premieres. She reunites with ABT principal David Hallberg, with whom she has shared a fabled stage partnership. The pair exhibits their sublime chemistry in Valse Triste created especially for them by the illustrious Alexei Ratmansky and in a duet from Anthony Tudor’s classic The Leaves Are Fading.

Osipova alone embodies the bravura for which she is known in Ave Maria by Yuka Oishi, while Hallberg’s soulful virtuosity shines in In Absentia, a solo by Kim Brandstrup.

Osipova is joined by renowned contemporary dancer Jason Kittelberger in Six Years Later, by Roy Assaf, an Israeli choreographer noted for his earthy, sensuous movement. She also pairs with the award-winning Jonathan Goddard in Flutter by Spain’s Iván Pérez, who creates expressionistic dances full of experimentation.
