'Solo for Two'

Ballet stars Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev are back together on stage in London this summer at the London Coliseum.

The programme Solo For Two will include a new work by choreographer Arthur Pita called Facada, danced to music by Frank Moon, Phil King and traditional Portuguese fado and Passo by Ohad Naharin, artistic director of Batsheva Dance Company, danced to the British electronic music duo Autechre and English traditional folk music. The opening piece in the programme is still to be confirmed.

The pair were famously a couple off stage as well as on but are now as well as guesting with companies around the world, are based on separate continents – Vasiliev as Principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre and Osipova here in London, where she has been dazzling audiences in her performances with the Royal Ballet.
