This week, there were several big announcements about upcoming live musical performances that have been unleashed just in time for the holiday season. Now that the holiday season is in full swing, it is time for the Radio City Christmas Spectacular in New York City. The 90 minute show features 140 different performers including the Rockettes who will be taking the stage live. The number of shows being held will continue to increase as Christmas gets closer. This is a classic, family-friendly tradition that has been a part of New York City tradition for years. Tickets are on sale now for the show, which will run through December 30th.
New York City is also home to another big holiday production for those who are fans of live ballet. George Balanchine’s magical version of the classic play, The Nutcracker comes to life in an exciting event. This production is a new vision of the Tchaikovsky classic score. This ballet features a levitating tree and stunning costumes, setting and performances. The play is being held at the Kock Theatre at Lincoln Center and will continue shows through January 4th. Tickets for this New York City Ballet Company performance are on sale now for those who want to see all of the action unfold live on stage during the holidays.
