There's a nice anecdote in "I Remember Balanchine" about it. Rodgers asked Balanchine what kind of music he wanted for the dance, and Balanchine said, "No, you write. I do," much to Rodgers' surprise and pleasure. So Rodgers wrote and Balanchine did.

As for the new set designs - who would have authorized such a radical change? If the ballet is owned by, for example, the Balanchine Trust (and I don't know if it is), wouldn't some permutation of the original set designs be protected along with the choreography?

Suzanne Farell's group will do it in Washington this fall.
boston Ballet will perform it this coming season as well

"Slaughter " was the Act II ballet, and it was one of the first (and may in fact have been the first, but I'd have to check)
Agnes deMille's choreography for Oklahoma! is generally considered to have been the first.
