otherwise mel's commentary seems to cover a lot. anton simon, is, i believe, responsible for one of the alternate solos used for the famous drigo 'pas de deux a trois' - it's the one we also see on occasion in the 'dream scene' of DON Q. but now that i say this i think it's not the one included in the gusev/vinogradov 'text' of the ballet as done by the kirov. (it's the variation known to fonteyn and nureyev watchers, from the version the pas nureyev set for himself at the royal ballet, as a standard pas de deux, and that fonteyn did consistently.)
maybe john-michael or doug knows further details.
(i can't recall if alexandra put into her archives here a little fact sheet i cobbled together when the kirov first brought its CORSAIRE to nyc and which is probably in sore need of re-editing, but it is a start to some of the identifications of the bits and pieces that make up the current soviet/russian CORSAIRE stagings.)
