About the show

Radio City Music Hall presents its annual holiday extravaganza featuring the legendary Rockettes. More…

Radio City's iconic 'Christmas Spectacular' stars more than 140 performers in a heartwarming revue about finding the spirit of season in your heart. Headlined by The Rockettes, the famed precision dance troupe known for its synchronized routines such as "Rag Dolls" and "Parade of the Wooden Soldiers," the show also features actors, singers, dancers, Santa, high-tech interactives, and a climactic Living Nativity complete with animals. A New York Christmas tradition for the whole family since 1933.
