Photographer's Note

The holiday season is here, and for me it began early with my annual visit to Radio City Music Hall to see the Christmas Spectacular. Last year it was cancelled due to COVID, but this year it was back. All attendees had to show proof of vaccination to enter. I was a bit nervous to be back in a theater, but thankfully most guests were wearing masks, and everything went well.

Visitors enter the theater through the Grand Lobby, and during the holiday season you are greeted by a large, crystal, Christmas tree chandelier. It is 35 feet tall (10.6 meters), and is decorated with 11,000 Swarovski crystal pieces.

Radio City Music Hall opened in December 1932, and the first Christmas show was performed the following year. The theater has an Art Deco theme, with various artwork throughout, and the auditorium has almost 6,000 seats. It is also known for its precision dance troupe, the Rockettes. They are the stars of the Christmas show, performing many dance numbers with lots of quick costume changes.

Seeing the Christmas Spectacular is always a highlight of the holidays for me. The set designs, music and costumes are all fabulous, and the theater itself is beautiful.

In the WS are two scenes from the show.
