Copland’s The Tender Land
Michael M. Ehrman, director; Adam Turner, conductor; Benjamin Firer, graduate assistant conductor
On a Midwestern farm in the 1930s, Laurie Moss is on the brink of graduating from high school when she meets Martin, an itinerant worker hired to help with the spring harvest on her family’s farm. As this coming-of-age story unfolds, a romance blossoms between the two, and Laurie dreams of exploring the world beyond home. But the young couple must contend with the community’s mistrust of outsiders and fear of the unknown. This production features selections from Copland’s Old American Songs. Performed in English, with supertitles.
