I remember reading somewhere, though I can't place it, that Danilova once suggested to Balanchine that he put on the Jardin Animee, and he said no, because then everyone would realize how much he had taken from it! Balanchine certainly took thinks from Petipa, lots of the white swan, and certainly Raymonda's hand clapping solo look similar, though of course Balanchine changed certain accents. There is of course nothing underhand about it--Petipa reworked lots of Romantic ballets, too.
