Macaulay's article "Whose Swan Lake is it?" is a really worthwhile read.

 

 

Yes, I don't think I have even seen that pose ending the Black Swan PDD, and I certainly agree that it would be nice to see the original ending of Giselle,not sure if I have even seen it but I know about it, I prefer the original musical ending too instead of the quiet one we are used to.
