MUSIC: Copland: Rodeo
Dust off your boots and ten-gallon hat, find a good spot in the bleachers and get up close and personal with one of the most exciting shows in town: Rodeo! In this dynamic visual-musical piece, you'll see the rodeo as only the contestants get to see it. Jump into the chutes, learn roping with feisty ranch kids, get airborne with a wild bronc rider and finish up at a lively country dance. Through intimate, behind-the-scenes photography and the music of Aaron Copland, audiences are given a window into the ranch way of life, amidst the sweeping western sky. Rodeo! is a rip-roarin' good time your audience, young and old, cowgirl and city boy alike, will long remember.
