The Radio City Christmas Spectacular 2018 literally kicks off the holiday season in NYC, and it's one of the best Christmas things to do. A yearly tradition since 1933, this classic Christmas spectacle offers tap dancers, a flying Santa Claus and, of course, the world-famous synchronized precision dancing of the Rockettes. And that's not nearly all: If New York City Ballet's beloved production of The Nutcracker just doesn’t have enough onstage camels for you, this show is the one to see. Here’s everything you need to know about getting tickets, the 60,000 pounds of props used and just how many hours of high kicking it takes to prep for a show.

When is the Radio City Christmas Spectacular 2018?

The Radio City Christmas Spectacular runs from November 9, 2018 through January 1, 2019.
