Intermountain Opera Bozeman presents Aaron Copland's The Tender Land
Date: October 13, 2017
Time: 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Intermountain Opera Bozeman, Montana’s most widely acclaimed and well respected opera company, begins its 2017-2018 40th Season Anniversary with the Americana classic, Aaron Copland’s The Tender Land. In a vivid portrait of the rural Midwest, the American dream and youthful spirit come to life in Aaron Copland’s only opera, The Tender Land. The opera highlights an episode in the lives of Laurie, her family and two migrant workers in a quintessential coming of age story set during the Great Depression. Inspired by Depression era photographs in James Agee’s book Let Us Now Praise Famous Men the score is cut from the same cloth as that of Appalachian Spring – the melodic, folkish music that defines Aaron Copland.
