i am hopeful Mel will be able to confirm that it's the (Polish) mazurka from the ballroom scene. [i suppose it could also be the (Hungarian) czardas?]
in any case S.L. sports a 'decorative' moustache.

Since this has to be ca. 1900, I'd say that there's a good chance that they were working with the original or near the original costume designs. If I recall correctly, there's a nice photo of Felix and Mathilde Kschessinsky/a in the 1895 costumes, which were rather dark. They were the first couple (down right corner) in the Mazurka. In fact, Kschessinska started popping off the bijoux on the costumes, and went for the real thing! Marussia followed suit, and pretty soon the women were in a geology war to see who could get more rocks onto her costume. I've seen and heard estimates of everything from 100,000 to 1,000,000 Rubles being onstage while this was going on!

Thanks for specifying.
Stephan Heathcote's moustache, and those of the (male) corps . . .
