The Rockettes are superb and the mainstay of the performance. I saw the show way back in 1973 and have always retained the memory of that experience. This updated version is new and thrilling (the double-decker bus and virtual tour of NYC is fantastic), yet some of the original remains:
* The Parade of the Wooden Soldiers is in the show since its conception in 1933; in my opinion it is one the greatest choreographed music pieces of all time
* The Live Nativity is visually beautiful as ever
The price of greeting cards has risen so high that I seriously considered not sending any this year. Along came this DVD...I've ordered several copies of this show to send to people this year in lieu of holiday cards. I usually look at a holiday card for about 30 seconds. This DVD is 90 minutes of entertainment that can be kept and enjoyed over and over again. I don't know about you, but I've never saved a holiday greeting card from year to year; however, if I received this for the holidays, I'd keep it and remember who sent it to me.
And, let's face it, the show is just plain fun!
Maybe if we press the Music Hall they will release other great stage spectaculars. I started seeing productions back in the late 50's till last years Christmas Show and the many shows i worked on during the 60's and 70's.
This is a great purchase and if you have never seen a Radio City Music Hall Show, GET THIS ONE. You won't be disappointed.
If you have seen the filmed productions of 'Cats' or 'Into The Woods',you probably noticed thatthe camera focused on the production...and we got to see the entire performances...
However, Ego brain never allowed the camera to focus on a dance routine or a singer for longer than five seconds without switching focus..He would pull the camera away so we saw more of the theater than the show..
I know no one who goes to the theater to watch the 'audience'...but Captain Ego showed as much of the audience as he did the show...
The 'show' deserved SEVEN stars..the filming deserved a TWO....
What a waste!

I got this DVD some time ago & watched it, awful! It was lame, uninteresting, & too young! You have to be 2 or 3 to think this is good! Read morePublished 3 months ago by bratzlady
My eleven year grandaughter is a dancer and she was captivated with the program.
Especially the toy soldier routine.. I'm so glad we were able to see it.
