From the Youtube poster:
"Here are 4 extremely rare pieces from Marius Petipa's ill-fated ballet "Le Miroir magique" ("The Magic Mirror"). The ballet was set to the music of the avant-garde composer Arseny Koreshchenko, & was given its first performance for Petipa's retirement benefit at the Mariinsky Theatre on 22 February [O.S. 9 February] 1903. With my upload is the set design of Alexandre Golovine. Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra conducted by Alexander Lazarev. CD Melodiya 5634-A, 1994.
2. Adage (this is likely the work of Riccardo Drigo, who Petipa had revise the score)
4. Valse de la Princess (Variation pour Mlle. Mathilde Kschessinskaya)
Now, can you imagine a reconstruction of this, or even a completely new Snow White ballet set to this original score...? You can't ask for a better "musique dansante" example! I would vote for a YES!.
4 score excerpts from Petipa's 1903 "The Magic Mirror"Scene, Adage, Variation and Valse by Arseny Koreshchenko
