Natalia Osipova: Becoming a Swan is an intimate portrait of the work of a ballet superstar, and the story told in pictures of how she prepares for the most iconic role in all of ballet. Features over 150 black and white images of Osipova rehearsing for her first appearance with The Royal Ballet, including unique glimpses taken behind the scenes and from the wings at Covent Garden. A--A-- Andrej Uspenski has used his exclusive vantage point as a First Artist with The Royal Ballet, to produce a moving photographic tribute to the most exciting prima ballerina in the world today. Foreword by Alexander Agadzhanov, the Royal Ballet's Senior Teacher and Repetiteur. 'Osipova is not merely a world-class, instinctive technician (though she is supremely that), but specifically a performer who, by some strange magic, appears to find it easier to be off the ground than on it: the air welcomes and embraces her like no other female dancer I have ever seen. The tiniest skip seems to send her soaring, and yet - however high, far, or fast she jumps - she miraculously manages to land in complete silence.' - Daily Telegraph
