The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is a one-of-a-kind holiday celebration that generations of people have come to cherish. The 2014 edition features dazzling dance numbers and costumes, traditional favorites, state-of-the-art technology and the return of a classic number that has been completely re-imagined and stars the Rockettes. Audiences will feel immersed in the warmth and magic of Christmas when the finale number, “Snow,” which was introduced in 2013, transforms the hall into a breathtaking winter wonderland that features GPS-enabled snowflakes. “Snow,” joins classic performances, including “Living Nativity,” which takes audiences on an awe-inspiring, uplifting journey, and “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers,” which sets the standard for the Rockettes style of precision dance, as a vital part of the show. The 2014 Christmas Spectacular will lift spirits and create lasting memories for friends, family and loved ones and Radio City will be aglow with the joy of the season.
