Synopsis:

The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is an annual show that is held at New York City's Radio City Music Hall. The show is held during the Christmas season. It is seen by more than a million visitors a year. The show uses over 140 performers, lavish costumes and an original musical score. It presents a combination of special effects, music and dance during various acts. Much of the dancing is done by the dance group known as the Rockettes. The show runs for six weeks from November 9 to December 30 and has, over the many years since it was first presented, become an annual tradition in New York at Christmas time. The Christmas show has grown and changed over the years. It began in 1933 as a show between movie screenings. This was just one year after the opening of the music hall in 1932. The Parade of the Wooden Soldiers and the living Nativity were the show's only acts. Both scenes were developed and choreographed by the Rockettes' founder Russell Markeit. In the early years of the play, the acts were directed by him as well. It was in 1979 that the Christmas show was expanded to ninety minutes to accommodate a number of additional acts. The tradition of the play being a show between movie screenings was dropped. Other acts have been added to the show since. Technology that did not exist in 1933 has also expanded it. Modern machinery has made possible many of the special effects as well as the show's opening.
