Why See Radio City Christmas Spectacular?
CELEBRATE THE HOLIDAYS THE NEW YORK WAY
With a BRAND NEW finale and updated special effects!
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.
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!
A Brand-New Finale!
Be the first to see the brand-new finale, where 100 drones will be taking flight in creating an enchanting holiday light show like you've never seen before. 'Christmas Lights' will follow once the North Star appears in the iconic Nativity scene, where the drones will then fly in various patterns and shapes creating a truly magical spectacle. Alongside this dazzling new performance, the Rockettes will also be donning new costumes and performing brand-new choreography! It's a true Christmas treat for you to enjoy.
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!
