While increasing my Giselle video collection with my latest adquisition-(Natasha/Misha)-I started to notice how common is the substitution of the final diagonal of pirouettes by the pique turns sequence at the coda during Spessivtzeva's solo. Then I started to review all my videos and clips and realized that the diagonal is almost nowhere to be found anymore. Besides the Cuban company, only Fracci appears performing it on a clip. This are fragments from a dialogue from a fellow Youtube poster
