some NY Public Library for the Performing Arts listings follow. It would seem that within Russia only oleg vinogradov's production followed somewhat in the tracks of ashton w/ its score based on f. herold. as mel has suggested the usual composer given is peter ludwig hertel. hope this helps. the first three listings indicate the productions you asked about; the final two link ashton's musical source material and vinogradov's. as follows:
