Christmastime In New Orleans
Coming soon


#
CHRISTMASTIME IN NEW ORLEANS is a festive holiday special showcasing the music, sights and internationally acclaimed cuisine of New Orleans. Taped in part at the historic Saenger Theatre in downtown New Orleans, the special spotlights a concert celebrating the city's vast and unique musical influences. Vibraphonist/percussionist Jason Marsalis and The NOLA Players perform a variety of holiday classics, putting a new twist on "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day," "Joy to the World" and "Go Tell it on the Mountain." In addition, a few of the Big Easy's finest chefs, including John Folse and Leah Chase discuss how and why the city's gastronomy embodies a cross section of global cultures, and demonstrate recipes typical of New Orleans at Christmas time. Also, actor and New Orleans native Wendell Pierce (HBO's Treme and The Wire) shares what makes the holidays in the Crescent City the only choice for him, and actor Jim Caviezel (CBS' Person of Interest and The Passion of the Christ) explains why this film destination is his favored "home away from home."
