Radio City Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall

The Radio City Christmas Spectacular celebrates its 86th year of precision dancing and high kicks, beginning on November 8 and running until December 30. Along with George Balanchine's The Nutcracker from the New York City Ballet and the Oratorio Society of New York's performance of Handel's Messiah at Carnegie Hall, the Spectacular has become one of NYC's most hallowed holiday traditions, drawing tourists and locals alike. Unlike the other two, however, there's nothing highbrow about Radio City Music Hall's pageant of glitz. It celebrates classic holiday values—peace! Love! Consumer confidence!—by deploying a flying Santa, a massive LED screen, and the sea of legs known as the Rockettes, all kicking in fabulous unison.
