since Mikhail Mikhailovich Fokine has been in these posts lately, mostly regarding the rights to his LES SYLPHIDES it might prove diverting to see something of him, first as a dancer, pre-CHOPINIANA and also to look at a grouping of some of the women involved in his POLOVTSIAN DANCES from PRINCE IGOR.
first M.M.Fokine in 1902(?) in Pavel Gerdt's Saint-Saens ballet JAVOTTE, which M.M.F. danced opposite Anna Pavlova (II) in a Pas d'Ensemble.
[the card scanned here is not likely an original from the period but a later Russian, or perhaps, Soviet, reprint.]

fokineana no. 2.
a quintet of ballerinas from the POLOVTSIAN DANCES in PRINCE IGOR.
the original cast included Smironva and Bolm, plus Vera P. Fokina, L. F. Schollar, B. F. Nijinska, & O.V. Fedoroava.
this card, an oldie indicates the presence in the group of Fokina, Lopukhova and Fedorava II, if the handwritten annotation can be trusted.
