This will be my first Rodeo.

Got this email from Mr. Adult Beginner the other day, with a challenge for you, Gentle Reader:

“Challenge your peeps,

if there is anywhere a good recording of Rodeo that I can obtain for you

the actual ballet NOT just the music

i have a million versions of the music because AMERICA FUCK YEAH

(I love those jews, they make all the best american music)

I want you to be able to see the ballet

level of Difficulty NO YOUTUBE

*there is a shitty partial recording of the ABT 1973 performance, looks like it’s ripped from VHS, plus it’s part of a documentary so theres talking and only incomplete versions of each number, so NO FUCKING YOU TUBE.

PS. NO YOUTUBE

He is so fired up about this!
And I like it!
Any ideas?

    Dude, I have no idea, but if you figure it out I want to know!!! Been dying to see the real ballet for, like, evar (well, realistically more like since they first used the music for the beef campaign… whatever).

    Similarly unable to rise to Mr. AB’s challenge, but I thought you and your readers might also enjoy this really interesting interview with Agnes de Mille that I came across: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lK1l9P8roYE

    Not the entire ballet, yet not you tube either. Is this helpful?

    ABT is performing it in March in West Palm Beach, FL. They also did several performances back in October, when they apparently also showed a special documentary about it (http://www.backstage.com/review/dance/american-ballet-theatre-agnes-de-mille-rodeo/)
