This 2-hour show is the gold standard, with 90 dancers, 62 musicians, 32 stagehands and two casts of young students (50 per show) from the School of American Ballet. While some kids won’t be able to sit through this ballet, if you’re little ones are old enough to appreciate a good show, the scenery is breathtaking (a Christmas tree grows from 12 feet to 40 feet in front of your eyes), and the costumes are opulent (including one that weighs 85 pounds and still requires the dancer playing Mother Ginger to stay on her toes).
