Question #7: What did Bathilde do to deserve this?

(I agree strongly with what Mary posted on another thread, that Bathilde, Flouncer Bitch, as she's now done in ABT's production, is the kind of modernization I could do without. Neumierization or MacMillanization, depending on your point of view, but it's adding drama where none is needed, and it ruins the mad scene.)

The exclamation points are original, too!!!

What Doug quoted from the libretto would indicate that Bathilde is a good person, as forgiving as Giselle. Has she changed, as has Hilarion, in productions you've seen?
