The Tender Land

  • Music Theatre 1020 18th Street Boulder, CO, 80302 United States (map)

Copland was inspired to write his only full-length opera by the Depression-era photographs of Walker Evans and James Agee’s Let Us Now Praise Famous Men. This classic tale of small-town America evokes everything from The Grapes of Wrath to Our Town and Oklahoma! “Copland in his Americana mode. … (A)n affecting, honest and musically elegant work … bustling rhythmic intensity and pungent chromatic bite.”—The New York Times.
