"Listen - are those steps we hear Santa's reindeer? No, those would be 72 nimble feet of the Rockettes!"
The New York Times
A true New York City institution, the annual Radio City Christmas Spectacular is the sparkling, breath-taking way to get you in the Christmas spirit!
Beginning in 1933, The Christmas Spectacular is an unforgettable display of sensational singing and dazzling dancing revolving around The Rockettes, the 36-strong world famous dance troupe, who expertly bring magical Yuletide scenes to life. Expect a series of stunning dance vignettes that includes a tender living rendition of The Nativity featuring real camels, sheep, and donkeys, to their very own version of The Nutcracker, complete with life-sized teddy bears dancing with Clara. And of course, no self-respecting holiday show would be without the great man himself, Santa Claus, drawn on a sleigh by a team of uber-glamorous reindeer. And not forgetting the glorious kickline of "12 days of Christmas" where the Rockettes are bedecked with holly and gold costumes.
Whether nimbly navigating the classic 'Parade of the Wooden Soldiers' or winding through magical snowy forests dressed as candy canes, the impeccably talented Rockettes are a shining sight, decked out in glamorous costumes (each is adorned with over 3,000 Swarovski crystals) and performing on wondrously designed sets. Audiences will understand why this remarkable extravaganza is seen and beloved by over one million visitors a year.
An exuberant and grand marvel, banish the humbugs from your life and delight the whole family with a pilgrimage to the country's most lavish and loved Christmas Spectacular!
The costume department have one of the hardest jobs creating and maintaining more than 1,300 costumes that cross the stage in 90 magical minutes throughout the show - each costume is adorned with Swarovski crystals, making them some of the most expensive in showbusiness!
