The Russian ballerina Natalia Osipova, who recently joined the Royal Ballet as a principal dancer, sustained a mild concussion on Saturday afternoon in a collision with a fellow dancer during the matinee performance of Wayne McGregor’s new “Tetractys — The Art of Fugue.”

 

The injury was announced by Kevin O’Hare, the director of the Royal Ballet, who appeared onstage at the beginning of the evening performance on Saturday.

Alastair Macaulay reviews the ABT Studio Company:

Child dancers regularly learn aspects of technique that are beyond the capacity of us nondancers. But in big theaters, it’s easy to take much for granted — whereas studio conditions bring us closer to the practical physics of ballet. On Saturday night, when the young dancers of American Ballet Theater’s Studio Company performed at the 92nd Street Y Buttenwieser Hall, their courage was evident — and admirable — in the opening ensemble adagio of the first item.

In the contemporary ballet “Liliom” -- based on a 1909 play of the same name, which Rodgers & Hammerstein turned into the musical “Carousel” -- Hamburg Ballett choreographer-director John Neumeier sends the audience home with a surprising hopefulness surrounding the iconic, central couple.

 

The German company gave “Liliom” its American debut this weekend at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts.
