Stacia Napierkowska in 'Les Vampires'
Stacia Napierkowska (1886 - 1945)
Les Vampires (1915) [Marfa Koutiloff]: Poisoned by a hidden needle inside a ring, she grows weak, collapses and dies while performing a ballet dressed in a black bat costume.  (Nice facial reactions as she realizes something's wrong, but the actual collapse is shown from a far distance.)
