America's most beloved holiday theatrical!
No story, just spectacle: For more than 75 years, this legendary variety show has been a Christmas tradition in New York City. In a series of 12 scenes, the vast stage at Radio City Music Hall is filled with the world-famous Rockettes, plus singers, ice-skaters, kids, a full orchestra and various farm animals—including a camel!—for the show-stopping Living Nativity.
What Is The Radio City Christmas Spectacular Like?
There’s more great precision dancing than ever in the show’s current edition, which was revamped in 2007 and tweaked again this year. Glamorously outfitted in a series of eye-popping costumes, the Rockettes perform on a double-decker bus, a sparkly staircase and a snowy forest and enact a lightning-fast version of “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” Not to worry: They’re still doing the classic “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers” number, too. Each scene is enhanced by video backdrops displayed on one of the world’s largest LED screens.
Is The Radio City Christmas Spectacular Good for Kids?
Yes! Ideal for audiences of all ages, the Spectacular has become a holiday tradition for generations of families. Morning and afternoon performances allow little ones to enjoy the show when they’re well-rested, and quick-moving scenes of Santa’s workshop, a stuffed animal Nutcracker, and even a 3-D film will keep them riveted. You can’t go wrong with this one.
