Rodeo, by the American Ballet Theatre 1973, originally choreographed by Agnes de Mille, to music by Aaron Copland. In addition to ballet, Agnes de Mille would also choreograph several Broadway musicals, including Oklahoma! and Carousel. This is an example of a ballet where the music would also become well known and popular in concert form (that’s how I discovered it).
