Does this help?

"The Tempest first appeared as a ballet in 1774 at the King?s Theatre
London. In 1834 it was choreographed by Coralli to music by
Schneitzh÷ffer, and there was a version by Filippo Taglioni in 1838.
Michael Smuin?s The Tempest was created in 1980 for the San Francisco
Ballet with music by Paul Chihara and Purcell. Other versions have
been by Glen Tetley with music by Nordheim (1979) and Rudolf Nureyev

I didn't know there were so many versions.  I guess I'm looking for
the version danced by Christina Fagundes, former soloist of American
Ballet Theatre in New York.
