Here is a more complete description of "The Golden Dreydl:"

Public Radio's "Sound & Spirit" host Ellen Kushner and Shirim perform their award-winning Chanukah special. "The Golden Dreydl: a Klezmer Nutcracker" is a Chanukah-inspired fantasy-adventure tale: Tchaikovsky meets Harry Potter and they go to a Jewish wedding! Kushner's enchanting storytelling is woven into a live musical performance of Shirim's ingenious klezmer adaptations of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite. The whole family will enjoy this multifaceted performance: a new twist on an old favorite. Kushner and Shirim have created a brand-new retelling of an old tale: 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.
