The world-famous Rockettes of Radio City Music Hall are ready for another year of high-kicking family holiday fun.
The Radio City Christmas Spectacular has been one of America’s top holiday shows for 78 years and an annual tradition for millions of people. The 2010 show is sure to mesmerize audiences with exciting Rockette performances, gorgeous costumes, elaborate scenery and breathtaking special effects.
“As we embark on another glorious year of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, we are saluting one of the most beloved entertainment institutions in the world and the millions of patrons that have made this show part of their holiday tradition year after year,” said Don Simpson, executive vice president of productions for MSG Entertainment.
The 2010 show will include the signature precision dancing of the Rockettes performing to some of their holiday classics like “12 Days of Christmas” and other signature production numbers such as “New York at Christmas,” which includes an authentic double-decker passenger bus coming on stage at Radio City Music Hall. The Rockettes will lead the audience on a historic tour of New York City landmarks that culminates with a show-stopping routine with a jaw-dropping routine in Time Square and indoor fireworks show.
Other numbers include favorites such as “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers” and the living nativity scene, which have been part of the show since its launch in 1933.
“We want the experience to begin for our patrons the moment they walk through the doors at Radio City, from the interior of the Music Hall to the performance on stage,” Simpson said.
The Radio City Christmas Spectacular opened Friday and runs through December 30.What people are talking about.Story about Sky-High Kicks.
