editing to add:
I did a search and found a thread on the Kirov-Mariinsky forum that discussed this a bit. It starts several posts down.

Exactly, not much more to add. The Mariinsky was bound to dance Pierre Lacotte's version of "Ondine" at the last Festival in February 2002. The ballet was aborted at the last minute for various reasons (artistic, financial....). So, for the moment "Ondine" has been declared dead at the Mariinsky.

fyi: lacotte's L'OMBRE did make it to the stage, such as it was, as follows:
Ombre : Lacotte after Taglioni, F)
Chor: Pierre Lacotte after Filippo Taglioni; mus: Ludwig Wilhelm Maurer. First perf: Nancy, June 3, 1993; Ballet de Nancy.

By the way, what a pity that nearly all the repertory that Lacotte had built in Nancy was lost when he left the direction of the company a few years ago... I know his reconstructions often are controversial, but at least it's ballet (and also he had added quite a lot of Balanchine and Ballets Russes works to the repertory of the Ballet du Rhin).
