Rodeo is a ballet scored by Aaron Copland and choreographed by Agnes de Mille, which premiered in 1942. Subtitled, “The Courting at Burnt Ranch,” the ballet consists of five sections: “Buckaroo Holiday”, “Ranch House Party”, “Corral Nocturne”, “Saturday Night Waltz”, and “Hoe-Down”. The symphonic version omits “Ranch House Party”, leaving the other sections relatively intact.
