  1. Natalia Osipova & Ivan Vasiliev - Solo For Two - London Coliseum

    Press Review 1Jeffery Taylor, Daily Express, Sunday 10 August 2014Performance 6 - 9 August 2014

    Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev are blessed with talents placing them among the world’s greatest of today’s dancers. But based on last week’s shudderingly embarrassing West End season, one virtue is absent from their considerable endowments – common sense.

    Review: Mariinsky Ballet - Apollo / A Midsummer Night’s Dream - Royal Opera House

    Graham Watts, Saturday 9 August 2014— Performance: 8 - 9 August 2014

    ...free-flowing pas de deux framed within the elegance of a sparkling corps de ballet, including a central divertissement of melting sweetness that is incongruously led by another couple, in this case a captivati… Continue Reading

    Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev test their range with a specially-created evening of contemporary work. They dance these new styles with guts and conviction, but we’re only getting glimpses of their talent.

    …the artistry of these two ballet prodigies casts a very different spell as we watch their minds and bodies engage with three contemporary choreographers: Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Ohad Naharin and Arthur Pita. This programme is a risk, a challenge, an adventure for th…
