Twenty minutes with the Snow Fairies

Members of the Radio City Rockettes took a few minutes from their busy schedule to pose for a panoramic portrait in the upstairs lobby of the historic Ovens Auditorium on Thursday, December 15, 2005, in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA. This was just before their final dress rehearsal for the December 16 opening of "The Radio City Christmas Spectacular".

A cast of over 100 performers and crew brought the famed New York City attraction to Charlotte for a run of performances from December 16, 2005 through January 1, 2006.

The show is being presented by the North Carolina Blumenthal Performing Arts Center http://www.BlumenthalCenter.org.
