We have two pairs of tickets to give away for Force of Nature Natalia, a new film documentary about one of the world’s greatest ballet dancers.

The film follows a year in the life of Natalia Osipova, as director Gerald Fox takes the audience on a journey to the heart of the Royal Opera House, home of The Royal Ballet, to watch Osipova in the creation and rehearsal of some thrilling works – from La Bayadèrewhich requires her to dance both lead roles – Nikiya and Gamzatti – on alternate nights, to Arthur Pita’s new dance/theatre work The Mother. (Click here to view the trailer.)

Force of Nature Natalia premieres on June 6 at the Curzon Mayfair at 6.30pm, with a Q&A with Fox and Osipova, with an extra screening on June 9, again with a Q&A with director and star. It will be on UK-wide cinema release from June 7 (see screening details here) with the Sky Arts TV broadcast on June 18.

To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets to the film, simply email by midday on May 29 with your choice of date.

Terms and conditions:

Two pairs of tickets will be issued to the winner for a screening of Force of Nature Natalia, which are non-transferable.

The winners can choose which screening they’d like to attend from this list.

Tickets will be available for the winner to pick up from the box office of their chosen cinema on the same day of the screening. The prize is as stated; no cash or other alternatives will be offered.
