Radio City Christmas Spectacular
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas... It’s also beginning to sound a lot like Christmas, with the chords of Santa, Baby and Winter Wonderland floating out of just about every tinsel-strung store in Manhattan. But Yuletide lovers after the very best tunes must hurry their sleigh to the Radio City Music Hall for the beloved annual NYC tradition that is the Christmas Spectacular.
Celebrating its 90th edition this year, the stunning stage showcase features glitter-clad, high-kicking, all-female dance troupe The Rockettes, who will twirl their way through a magical medley of feel-good classics.
The performance includes a heart-racing tap routine to The 12 Days and a toy-themed ballet set to excerpts from The Nutcracker, as well as the perfectly synchronised signature, The Parade of the Wooden Soldiers – yes, they do all fall down.
While the coiffed hairstyles and matching mini-skirt ensembles might look like something out of Christmas past (a decidedly ‘60s affair, certainly), there are some new high-tech additions such as 3D animated projections and GPS-controlled floating snowflakes.
So go on, giddy over faster than Dancer and Prancer to get your tickets and prepare for a night of festive frolics.
Until 3 Jan, 2016.
