Medora danced with her friends -- they all had fans (very large ones, like burlesque dancers), and were able to create several interesting tableaux with them.

Ah thank you; shame Doug wasn't commissioned to reconstruct that pas de six for the Bavarian State Ballet's production because I'd like to see it, or did he offer to reconstruct it and his offer was turned down?

And did any of those tableaux include one where the dancers made a kaleidoscope effect, reminiscent of a peacock's plumage?

I don't know what the circumstances were for the Bavarian production, but yes, the PNB family matinee included a peacock moment...
