Thanks to Jane Simpson, the following Giselle clip has been identified as Liane Dayde and Michel Renault and not Beryl Grey and
Yuri Kondratov as published by Pathe News.

What do people think of the Dayde’s Act 1 solo?

Loved it. Was that final series of pique turns sped up..? (it was insanely fast). And what was that snap of Swan Lake they wrote about in the credits...? (cause I didn't see it)

She looks and dances like a real person- not someone who has "ballerina" stamped on her head. She keeps the movement flowing. I don't know for sure cubanmiamiboy, if those turns were speeded up - they looked like the real deal to me. Amazing!!!

I'm guessing this Giselle dies by her own hand and not from heartbreak (compared for instance to the recent Gelsey clip).
