Ever since I was a little girl, I always dreamed of going to see the Radio City Rockettes. That dream is finally coming true here in 2011. The Rockettes are arriving in Durham, NC on November 10 and I was invited to go. I am beyond excited and taking one of my besties with me. It is like an early Christmas present.
“The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is the #1 live holiday production in the world and has been a cherished part of holiday family traditions for generations.” said Don Simpson, executive vice president, Productions, MSG Entertainment. “We are thrilled to present this new unparalleled production to the Durham, NC audiences as they will experience dynamic and compelling new content while still honoring the traditions steeped in the Christmas Spectacular that have entertained our fans for more than 79 years.”
Both new scenes and fan favorites will be enhanced by a state of the art 50-foot LED screen as this technology transports the audience from a wintry landscape to Times Square to Santa’s Workshop right before their very eyes. The vibrant new sets and breathtaking special effects will allow families to connect with both the intimacy and grandness of the Christmas Spectacular. This year’s show will hit the road with nearly 20 trucks, making this the biggest production of the Christmas Spectacular to play in a theatrical setting. From the moment guests settle into their seats, they will be immersed in a whirlwind of Christmas spirit.
In a brand new scene, “New York at Christmas,” the Rockettes will board a lifelike double-decker tour bus taking audiences on a guided tour through the streets of New York City. This new scene includes show stopping choreography coupled with the landscape of iconic New York City holiday landmarks and culminates in the crossroads of the world, Times Square.
I am SO excited. I will definitely be getting in the Christmas Spirit early and already thinking of what type of Christmas attire to wear. I will be reporting back with pictures and a full review of the show, so stay tuned.
Disclosure: I am being provided tickets to the Christmas Spectacular show. No other compensation was given. All thoughts and opinions are of my own.
