It begins when you walk through the doors of the storied Radio City Music Hall. You pause for a moment and stand to admire the Art Deco lobby then make your way to your seat. With a hush, slowly the curtain rises, the music swells and Rockettes appear. Perfect, in unison they dance across the stage, mesmerizing in their precision. And just like that you are transported to another place where reindeer prance and dash through the snow, where Rag Dolls spring to life and Wooden Soldiers march in a fantastic parade. For a time, the hustle and the bustle of the world outside disappears and you are reminded of the true meaning and spirit of the holiday season. Then, in the blink of an eye, the curtain falls and you know Christmas is here.
