American Ballet Theatre, New York Water Taxi
and NYC’s South Street Seaport join together
this Fall to celebrate the 70th Anniversary Celebration of Agnes
de Mille’s landmark ballet Rodeo.
With its World Premiere on October 16, 1942 in New York City, Rodeo

to be synonymous with themes of the American southwest. ABT celebrates
this milestone work with special anniversary performances during
its Fall season at New York City Center October 16-20.
