the first clip seems to be Clustine's SUITE DE DANSE, in which, if mem. serves, Serge Peretti wore pointeshoes,  when he danced the male role performed here by Lifar.


this is NYPL's cat. listing for he ballet:

Suite de danses : Chor: Ivan Clustine; mus: Frédéric Chopin, orch. by André Messager & Paul Vidal; cos: Pinchon. First perf: Paris, Opera, June 23, 1913; Paris Opera Ballet.//Revival: Paris, Opera, Feb 20, 1922; Paris Opera Ballet.
