Natalia Osipova leaps into the city that never sleeps
Natalia Osipova and Friends dazzled the big apple with four performances at New York City Center. As Broadway World write, “ripples of applause” broke out in the audience as they watched Natalia and Sergei “believably embody a 21st century movement aesthetic [in a way that] was both astonishing and heartening.”
Pictured above are Natalia Osipova, Sergei Polunin, James O’Hara, and Jason Kittelberger warming up on the stage at New York City Center before getting ready to wow the crowd.
Next stop on the Osipova tour: Athens.
