This re-run is especially for those who missed this nostalgic production last December that was streamed online by the Cultural Center of the Philippines and shown at the SM Mall of Asia Grounds as a drive in movie due to the pandemic protocols. The production revolves around the theme of Christmas 2020 still pushing through inspite of the pandemic.
Both productions are timeless classics directed for film by Carlos Siguion-Reyna. The Christmas classic songs were arranged by National Artist for Music Ryan Cayabyab while the set design was by Eric Cruz. The artistic direction and costumes were overseen by National Artist for Dance Ms. Alice Reyes
Following stringent health and safety protocols, The Nutcracker Ballet Act 2 and Tuloy Ang Pasko were filmed at the CCP Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo without a live audience.
