This rarely performed classic is a little bit Steinbeck, and a little bit “Oklahoma!”

This classic tale will arrest you with its lyrical beauty and soaring melodies. Memorable ensemble numbers include:

  • “The Promise of Living”
  • “Oh, I was goin’ a courtin’!”
  • “Stomp your feet upon the floor”

Aaron Copland, already famous for his folkloric cutting edge ballet scores, “Billy the Kid” (1938), “Rodeo” (1942), and “Appalachian Spring” for Martha Graham (1944), conducted Interlochen’s orchestras in the late 1960s.
