On October 16, 1942, the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo premiered Agnes de Mille's Rodeo at the Metropolitan Opera House. Frederic Franklin was cast as the Champion Roper in the original production opposite Agnes de Mille as the Cowgirl.

This Fall, American Ballet Theatre celebrates the 70th Anniversary of de Mille's famous Western love story with a special anniversary performance of Rodeo on October 16 at New York City Center - 70 years to the day of Rodeo's World Premiere. Here, Frederic Franklin recounts that first performance and discusses a notable turning point in Rodeo's creation.

Rodeo will be performed on October 16, 18 and 20 as part of ABT's 2012 Fall Season at New York City Center.
