Default Re: 6/8 Steamboat from the Nutcracker Ballet

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.
It was in a production of "The Nutcracker" I saw in Knoxville Tennessee about 11 years ago, so I am betting it is in the original score.
