About This Show

MSG Entertainment presents The Radio City Christmas Spectacular,
celebrating 85 magical years of the Rockettes.

The 2012 edition of the Christmas Spectacular will continue to create lasting memories for generations of families that have made this cherished production a holiday tradition. In celebration of this unforgettable year, for the first time ever, patrons will be able to encounter a experiential archive exhibit at Radio City Music Hall commemorating the past, present and future of the Rockettes.

Through state-of-the-art technology, audiences will feel immersed in the warmth and magic of Christmas in a way that only Radio City can deliver as scenery extends beyond the stage transforming the interior of the Music Hall into a magical canvas. Audiences will be awe-inspired as numbers including “The Living Nativity” and “Santa’s Workshop” are enhanced by using digital projection coupled with the world’s largest flown indoor LED screen. The Rockettes will take the Christmas Spectacular to new heights as they perform some of the most challenging and innovative choreography ever conceived while showcasing their signature precision dance style.

In the 3DLive scene, which incorporates 3D elements interacting with live performance and has never been done before in a live theatrical setting, the Rockettes take audiences on a whimsical journey battling “humbugs,” gingerbread men, and an ice monster who have stolen all the
Christmas toys.

Fan-favorite numbers including “New York at Christmas,” where the Rockettes board a real double-decker Gray Line bus taking audiences on a tour of Manhattan, and the high-energy tap-infused number, “Twelve Days of Christmas,” which will dazzle audiences as the Rockettes performance style continues to be both deceivingly complex and entirely glamorous.

Beloved numbers that have been performed since the show’s inception such as “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers” continues to set the standard as the signature Rockettes number for precision performance, and “The Living Nativity” remains a vital part of the production. The Rockettes will undoubtedly bring the audience to their feet with a Rockettes finale, “Let Christmas Shine,” honoring and celebrating the Rockettes as the stars of the show. The Rockettes will sparkle from the stage as each of their costumes are crystallized with more than 3,000 Swarovski crystals.
