I've read that her Kitri has been thrilling in her 3 or 4 St. Petersburg appearances, each performance topping the previous one. Kate B, could you please tell us more about the London performance? Already, the review in the Evening Standard says
... Natalia Osipova was phenomenal...
As the applause thundered, the Bolshoi's director Alexei Ratmansky could be seen climbing out of his seat and heading backstage. He was, surely, rushing to congratulate Natalia Osipova.. [she] romped through it with such exuberance and flair, such feisty good humour and quick-witted panache, that her gutsy, lusty Kitri easily rates as the best performance of this Bolshoi visit.

Osipova did the Grand Pas variation 1 - she's beautiful, light, tiny, young. Everyone is raving about her, and my friends have insisted that no one, anywhere, could top her Kitri.
