[ ... ] she along the way revitalizes most of the "old" ballets she tackles is a welcome bonus. For someone of her age that's quite an achievement.
Very rare qualities -- and something to welcome and celebrate. You can see and feel it even on the brief clips. I look forward to seeing more.
An aspect of Osipova's dancing not so far mentioned is how she appears to have the power to energize the dancers around her, as if they instinctively up their game when in the presence of someone so dynamic.
It amazes me how, in these days of super-athletic, super-flexible dancers, so many of them do NOT revitalize the ballets or energize their fellow dancers. Sometimes today it seems to be about showing the world just how extraordinary I am, at the expense of what is going on around me. Not to mention the cases in which extreme technical abilities are coimbined with absence of stage presence or, indeed, personal blandness on stage. ("I stretch, therefore I am".) In contrast, Osipova seems to be an extremely generous dancer to those on stage with her as well as to the audience.
