Some early and mid 20th century Giselles. All dancers do the diagonal instead of the manège. (In the 70s the diagonal was replaced by the manège in most Western productions; BNC still do the diagonal.) Also a reminder that dancers from more than half a century ago didn't have such poor technique as some YTbers like to believe... All Giselles here are in their 30s or 40s. The Spessivtseva footage was originally silent footage (the voice over is Anton Dolin's). Nerina dances the RB production and Fracci the ABT (Blair) production derived from RB.
