Force of Nature Natalia follows a season in the life of dance superstar Natalia Osipova. We follow Natalia as she prepares for a fifth season as a principal of the Royal Ballet, while continuing to champion contemporary dance with some of the world’s greatest choreographers. We watch the rehearsal process of new ballet Mother by Arthur Pita, a new commission for the Opera House with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, and the Royal Ballet's legendary production of La Bayadere directed by Natalia Makarova.
Natalia opens up about her life and history, her childhood in Russia, her time with American Ballet Theatre and her journey to the Royal Ballet. With unique access to Natalia’s personal archive, it is an unparalleled opportunity to get up close and personal with the leading ballerina of our generation and understand why critics and audiences everywhere call her a force of nature of the dance world!
