The Christmas Spectacular featuring The Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall is one of New York City's most beloved holiday shows. Starting in 1933, the 85-year-old show constantly reinvents itself, while simultaneously nodding to past traditions. This year's show features a brand-new finale scene featuring 100 drones.
The new finale scene, “Christmas Lights,” will be a stunning example of innovation blended with tradition. The finale begins at the conclusion of the “Living Nativity” scene with the original light of Christmas – the North Star. Fragments of light will suddenly appear as aerialists fly across the Great Stage. 100 drones, representing Christmas lights, will magically surround Santa Claus on stage, forming various shapes and patterns. The Radio City Rockettes will then be revealed, as they perform new choreography in glamorous new costumes designed by Tony and Drama Desk Award-nominated costume designer, Emilio Sosa.
The 2018 Christmas Spectacular runs through January 1st, 2019. Tickets are available now and start as low as $40.
