Sarah Lamb

American-born of British parents, Sarah Lamb joined the Boston Ballet in 1998, becoming its youngest principal five years later. She left to widen her experience abroad, accepting a First Soloist contract from the Royal Ballet in 2004.

A dancer endowed with unique technical and acting abilities, Osipova moved quickly from the corps de ballet to soloist.

French-born Zenaida Yanowsky trained in Spain. After a brief spell with the Paris Opéra Ballet, she joined the Royal Ballet in 1994, becoming a Principal in 2001. She has danced with distinction and authority in a wide repertory, including such differing roles as Sylvia, Manon, Gamzatti, and also proving an exceptional Odette-Odile. She also stands out in Balanchine works such as Agon. Last season she created the role of Anna II in William Tuckett's The Seven Deadly Sins and also appeared in Christopher Wheeldon's new DGV.
