Distributed Tracing, OpenTracing and Elastic APM

Hi
I am trying to use open tracing API in my application to trace events. Can Kibana visualize the events captured by the open API spans ? I was able to trace my application using the native elastic API , but I want to make it work with open tracing API. is it possible to still see the events in Kibana with open tracing spans?

I have used the ElasticApmTracer but when I try to use the below line
span = tracer.buildSpan(eventName).startActive(false).span();

The above code gives me java.lang.AbstractMethodError: co.elastic.apm.opentracing.ApmSpanBuilder.startActive(Z)Lio/opentracing/Scope;

Pls assist
