The annual show is described as follows: "Embraced by generations of families, the Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes is a one-of-a-kind tradition where the unmistakable spirit of Christmas in New York comes alive. The 2017 production features stunning Rockettes dance numbers and magnificent costumes and has undergone a complete technological overhaul and now includes digital projections that extend to all eight of Radio City Music Hall's iconic proscenium arches, making audiences feel like they are part of the show. The Radio City Rockettes are a legendary dance company and have been a part of the fabric of New York City for decades.''
