There is no better place to be this holiday than at the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, so bring your whole family to marvel at the incredible precision dancing of the Rockettes in beloved scenes with wooden soldiers or the stunning reenactment of the first Christmas. It is a one-of-a-kind celebration for sharing with family, friends, and loved ones, and the Opry House is beautifully decked out for the season with spectacular lights, sparkles, and other decorations! Every year, the Rockettes push themselves further to put on a show that’s more dynamic, more challenging, and more magical than the last, so take in cherished moments and create new memories! And this year they've added an all new second half to the beloved production. Your family will love the all new scenes that put Old St. Nick at center stage and tell a wonderful tale that reminds everyone what the true meaning of Christmas is.
You will enjoy continuous entertainment as somewhere in a snow-filled forest, reindeer hurry to hook up to their special sleigh, already bursting with presents. This merry gathering is made merrier at Santa’s arrival, and the night is filled with a million stars as you take a thrilling 3D ride through the skies with Santa! You will feel a part of the magic in Santa’s sleigh as it zooms over the frozen north, past international borders. From a unique take on “The Nutcracker” to the Rockettes’ original “Here Comes Santa Claus,” young Clara dreams about soft cuddly toys, and during this number, Clara’s dreams come true with ice skaters, dancing teddy bears, dozens of Santas, and more surprises! Join young Kayla and her mother as they are whisked off to the North Pole and catch a glimpse of the secret toy factory, meet Mrs. Claus and the elves, and see the colorful décor and magic-making!
When the Humbugs kidnap the toys from Santa’s Workshop, Santa enlists Kayla and her mother as well as the Rockettes for a video-game mission that takes you on a magical journey through the Northern Forest all the way to the castle of the Humbug King! Enjoy flying Humbugs that hover over the audience, an army of angry Gingerbread men, a giant Ice Monster, and the Humbug King himself!
In a reverent tribute to the first Christmas, the finale takes audience almost one hundred miles to Bethlehem to join Joseph and Mary lodging in a common stable. At this remarkable, moving, and seemingly ordinary place, Christ the King is born in an awe-inspiring Living Nativity with real animals, including three camels, five sheep, and one donkey! From near and far, the night is filled with wonderment, love, and reverence, as visitors come to pay respects to the child who will be their Lord, changing the world forever! The Christmas Spectacular closes with a final rendition of “Joy to the World” as the curtain falls!
“The Parade of the Wooden Soldiers” and the stunning “Living Nativity” has been performed since 1933 and are two of the most beloved in the show, and a new second act story will put Santa Claus at center stage.
