Great article on the Australian Ballet's blog about the genesis of this all-American ballet: http://www.behindbal...allets-cowgirl/

Thanks so much for the link -- it's been too long since I saw the work!

Since you've opened up the topic, I'm curious how many people on the board have seen Rodeo recently, and what they think of it in a contemporary repertory.

Oh, thank you so much for this link. Sarry was great in this role!

I find it interesting that we don't really see much of deMille's choreography itself nowadays, but I see her influence, even signature movements, all over the place.

I love that ballet!! And also haven't seen it in a while. It seems to me that it would always be appropriate in the repertoire.....it's rather timeless, as a piece of Americana.
