Photographer's Note

Continuing the holiday spirit, I present an abstract view of the great stage inside Radio City Music Hall. As I've written in previous notes, this Art Deco theater opened in December 1932, and the first Christmas Show was performed the following year.

The great stage measures 20.3 by 44 meters, and is designed to resemble a setting sun. Here some winter snowflakes are imposed over layers of that sunset.

In order to get a better idea of what the entire stage actually looks like, I'm including a WS photo. In that photo you can also see the two consoles on either side that control the Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ. It's the largest pipe organ built for a theater, with 4,410 pipes.

I hope everyone is enjoying this magical time of year!
