There is a magical feeling on the streets of Manhattan during each holiday season. The avenues are lined with lights and abuzz with the natural energy in what is arguably the global epicenter of culture and entertainment. The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is a marvelous show that perfectly embodies this spirit, and it has been playing in Radio City Music Hall since December of 1933. Radio City Christmas Spectacular tickets are now available to each of the performance dates in a run that is scheduled to stretch from November 7 to December 31.
The Radio City Christmas Spectacular Show has come quite a long way over the years, especially since the venue stopped showing movies and became a full-time live performance venue. In the decades since, swarms of fans have seen the Radio City Christmas Spectacular Show as part of an NYC vacation. And for good reason. Directed and choreographed by Linda Haberman, the show tells many classic Christmas tales while showcasing the immense splendor of The Big Apple at the height of winter.
Costume designers, musical directors and a variety of lighting and sound specialists blend their talents seamlessly to create a show that will captivate adults, teenagers and kids from start to finish. The Rockettes are major players in each performance, and they help Santa Claus along his journey while starring in many of the musical numbers.
Fans will bear witness to the classic sleigh ride of good ‘ol Saint Nick, the 12 Days of Christmas, The Parade of Wooden Soldiers and even a New York City-themed, Rockettes-style take on The Nutcracker. Here Comes Santa Claus is a tune that folks will be singing on the ride home, and the performance of the song Snow features a complete transformation of the stage into a frosty wonderland. After a modernized scene entitled Santa’s Video Game, the performance ends with Joy To The World, beckoning audience members to stand up sing along. Throughout these scenes, the Rockettes shine in various ways, including stunning and shimmering outfits during the aforementioned “Snow.”
This show has been wowing audiences for years, and it is a performance that simply cannot be re-created outside of the one-of-a-kind, historic venue. Radio City Rockettes tickets continue to be wildly popular every Holiday season, which is a major reason why taking a look at our large and affordable inventory right now is such a good idea.
