A Closer Look At The Program
The show has a very intricate story and every part of it has its own song (Sleigh Ride, Santa Flied To New York, The Parade Of The Wooden Soldiers, New York At Christmas and The Nutcracker are only some of the most popular songs). That being said, the story starts in a beautiful forest filled with show, where the Rockettes are working hard to hook up the sleigh of Santa Claus. After hours of “hard flying”, Santa finally arrives to the Radio City Music Hall. At the same time, the show also focuses on the story of a little girl named Clara, who always dreamed about having her own toy to play with.
The story scenes are set in different parts of New York and Manhattan, where the Rockettes “steal the spotlight” and board on a double decker bus and go on a tour of the entire city. The Rockettes visit some of the most notable parts of the city, such as the Central Park and the Times Square, and they eventually reach a local mall where they meet another one of Santa’s children and give her a doll. The story is filled with joyful scenes and colorful designs and decor, and Santa is always on the run, making sure that all the children are getting the toys and gifts they have been dreaming of the entire year.
The second part of the story is focused on the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, as illustrated through Inn, Mary and Joseph who are lodged at a common stable in the village. This is one of the most moving and remarkable scenes of the show and it tells the story exactly how it was told from generation to generation, including the visit of the Angel or the three wise men who were led by the star to the newborn child.
