Aaron Copland’s The Tender Land, which was inspired by the Depression-era photo journalism of Walker Evans, tells the coming-of-age story of Laurie Moss, an innocent but ambitious farm girl in the American midwest. The drama of Laurie Moss's awakening into adult life unfolds as a play with incidental musical accompaniment and arias. When Laurie meets Martin, a handsome drifter who picks up work on her grandparents' farm, she must make a choice: to remain ensconced within the reassuring certainties of agrarian life, or to heed the siren call of the great wide world and its new horizons.
