New York is an incredible city at any time of year, but during the winter it’s a truly magical place to be. From watching the enormous Rockefeller Christmas tree sparkle, Christmas shopping in the Big Apple, and ice skating in Central Park, there’s so much to do that will get you feeling festive. One of our favourites, and one of the oldest Christmas traditions for New Yorkers, is the Radio City Christmas Spectacular; an enchanting Broadway show that has been wowing audiences at the iconic Radio City Music Hall for over 80 years now! If you’re visiting New York City over the festive season, this is something you really can’t miss!
When this world-famous Broadway show comes to town, you know that Christmas has officially begun! This year, you can experience the magic for yourself from 11th November- 2nd January. Watch the glamorous Rockettes twirl across the stage in a flurry of glittering sequins as they perform dazzling dance routines in perfect unison.
Step into a winter wonderland where snow falls from above, dancing reindeers leap across the stage and the guest of honour- Santa Claus, soars above the audience on his sleigh. There’s no better way to get into the festive spirit than by getting the whole family together and singing along to famous Christmas carols like Jingle Bells and Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree. Make sure you look out for audience favourites like the Parade of the Wooden Soldiers and The Living Nativity, which have been featured in the show every year since it began.
While the show maintains a strong element of tradition, something new and exciting has been added in recent years. Using the largest indoor LED screen in the world and advanced 3D technology, audiences are able to enjoy an incredible immersive experience that will make them feel a part of the story. Check out the video below to see what you can expect from this heart-warming show…
If you’re visiting New York over Christmas and you’re bringing the children, this is definitely something we’d recommend to keep them entertained, and it’s something that big kids will love too!
