Natalia Osipova – Nghệ sĩ Ballet

Natalia Osipova (born 18 May 1986 in Moscow, Russia[1]) is an Russian ballet dancer with the Mikhailovsky Theater in St. Petersburg. Prior to dancing with the Mikhailovsky, Osipova danced with the Bolshoi. She cited “artistic freedom” as her reason for leaving.

From 1996 to 2004 she trained at the Moscow State Academy of Choreography she studied with Marina Kotova and Marina Leonova.. Upon graduation from the Academy, she was hired by the Bolshoi Ballet as a member of the corps de ballet. In 2005, she danced the part of Kitri in Alexei Fadeyechev’s production of Don Quixote (ballet) to much critical acclaim. After this solo debut she danced many more soloist parts, including the title role in the premiere of Johan Kobborg’s production of La Sylphide. In 2009, she received the Prix Benois de la Danse.

In May 2010, Osipova was promoted to a principal dancer after a performance of Don Quixote. In June 2010, she joined American Ballet Theatre for their Metropolitan Opera House season. She danced Don Quixote, with José Manuel Carreño, Sleeping Beauty and Romeo and Juliet with David Hallberg. A week before her performance in The Sleeping Beauty, Osipova was mugged outside the MET. She suffered minor bruises, lost only a pair of pointe shoes and a hammer, but was fine other than that and was still able to perform.
