The Radio City Christmas Spectacular celebrates its 88th year of precision dancing and high kicks this holiday season. Along with George Balanchine's The Nutcracker from the New York City Ballet, the Spectacular has become one of NYC's most hallowed holiday traditions, drawing tourists and locals alike. Unlike The Nutcracker, 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.

When is the Radio City Christmas Spectacular?

The Radio City Christmas Spectacular takes place from November 13, 2015 through January 3, 2016.

Where is the Radio City Christmas Spectacular?

The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is at Radio City Music Hall at Rockefeller Center. Take the B, D, F or M to 47th-50th/Rockefeller Center, or the 1 to 50th St./Broadway.

Tis the season! This show is a staple for me every year. What better way to ring in the holidays and new year then with the spectacular Rockettes. Also, if you have not been to Radio City Music Hall during the show's run, you are missing out. It's nothing short then magical :)
