Radio City Christmas Spectacular

For nearly 100 years, Radio City Musical Hall has dazzled and delighted people from around the globe. And since 1933, it has featured a special holiday extravaganza, appropriately named the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. This year promises to be as dynamic as ever. The show stars the famous Rockettes, Santa, a living nativity, and the "Parade of Wooden Soldiers." A sensational 3-D film featuring Jolly St. Nick and his reindeer crew kick-starts the show. Santa guides guests through NYC on his famous sleigh. Attending The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is a fantastic holiday tradition. But if you want to take your experience to the next level, you can jump on the famous stage and perform a 5-minute holiday themed a capella song (before the show starts), or enjoy the new Meet the Rockettes experience, where you can get to know the dancers a bit and experience the group's rich history, or attend a Rockette dance class. Mrs. Claus would surely be jealous! Radio City Music Hall is located at 1260 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY. Tickets range in price, starting at $39.00 for the 90 minute show. The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is performed several times a day. Buy tickets or visit the Box Office located at 1260 6th Ave., between 50th & 51st. After you've danced the night away, retire to your well appointed room at Hotel Mela. Hotel Mela is a boutique, Midtown Manhattan hotel that exudes a genuine NYC vibe and is the perfect place to unwind over a glass of wine while taking in NYC's holiday lights. Best yet, Hotel Mela offers a Broadway Package that's just what Santa ordered. Goodies include deluxe room accommodations, a CD of favorite Broadway tunes, late check out, and 20% off dinner for two at Mela's French restaurant, Saju. Conditions apply.
