American Ballet Theatre Presents Theme and Variations, Pillar of Fire, and Rodeo
- What George Balanchine said Theme and Variations’s intention was: “to evoke that great period in classical dancing when Russian ballet flourished with the aid of [Pyotr Ilyich] Tschaikovsky’s music”
- Antony Tudor’s Pillar of Fire: a woman worries her fiance will call off their engagement when he learns she’s pregnant with another man’s child; scored by Arnold Schoenberg
- Agnes de Mille’s Rodeo: composer Aaron Copland wrote the shortened dance sequences that are linked together in this suite by later compositions, including a jaunty piano solo rumored to have been written as a gift for the composer by his young protégé—one Leonard Bernstein
