Default Re: 6/8 Steamboat from the Nutcracker Ballet

I'm just curious: was the production where you heard "Steamboat" (which I know as "Steamboat Quickstep," but it's clearly the same tune) a production of the normal "Nutcracker," or was it the version by the Mark Morris Dance Group, "A Hard Nut"? I just saw that yesterday and I also noticed the use of Steamboat Quickstep, but I'm wondering if it's from the original Tchaikovsky score, or if it's something the Mark Morris guys threw in, which is just the sort of thing they'd do.
