Olivia Cowley will replace Natalia Osipova for the performance of Tetractys - The Art of Fugue on 11 February

During the matinee performance of Tetractys - The Art of Fugue on Saturday 8 February two cast members suffered injury and illness: Natalia Osipova suffered mild concussion after a clash of heads and Thiago Soares became unwell. Following the matinee both were seen by the Royal Ballet company doctor and the medical advice to both was that they should not appear at that evening’s performance. Due to the lateness of these events unfolding there was insufficient time to integrate other dancers into the cast and, regrettably, the performance of Tetractys was unable to take place.

Natalia Osipova is following medical guidelines and gradually returning to her full rehearsal and performance schedule. She will, however, be unable to perform her role in Tetractys tomorrow (Tuesday 11 February) but is scheduled to appear in the ballet on Thursday 13 February.

Thiago Soares has now made a full recovery and is scheduled to perform tomorrow evening in Tetractys.

    Hope to see you dance soon. Get well, missed you last Saturday evening

  3. Well done Olivia Cowley for standing in for Natallia Osipova on Tuesday evening, having learned the choreography in only 3 days and for dancing beautifully
