The Golden Dreydl
December 11, 2007 8:01 AM   Subscribe

The Golden Dreydl (streaming audio): a wonderfully... different arrangement of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite.

Sara is a little girl with a problem: She hates the annual family Chanukah party! But when a mysterious party guest gives her the gift of a golden dreydl, Sara is catapulted into a magical world of demons and fools, sorcerers and sages.

It's a family entertainment featuring the music of Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky ingeniously adapted by Shirim Klezmer Orchestra with an original story written and narrated by Sound & Spirit host Ellen Kushner.

Apologies if this isn't kosher, but for those of you who can't get the stream to work, you might want to try this link.
