Quad Cities Photography Club member Joe Maciejko, who often photographs Ballet Quad Cities events, writes: “The Quad Cities are blessed with many scenic photo opportunities to delight photographers. But our community is alive with other events and venues that are unique in our great land. Among them is Ballet Quad Cities, which is a performance-art treasure in our community. The ballet company, together with Orchestra Iowa, in April staged the production Wild Wild West. This included two ballets, Rodeo and Billy the Kid, performed to the music of Aaron Copland. This picture is from Rodeo, choreographed by Margaret King. It represents a delightful glimpse into the raucous cowboy life in a saloon in the Old West brought to life in a contemporary ballet. I was privileged to be able to photograph this production, which was a crowning jewel in the celebration of the 20th anniversary of Ballet Quad Cities in our community.”
