COSTA MESA, CA – Not everyone is able to travel to New York City to see The Radio City Christmas Spectacular famed show at Radio City Music Hall. Therefore, MSG Entertainment (MSGE) decided to bring the performance to you! The Christmas Spectacular will touch the hearts of millions of people in cities across the country.
The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is the #1 show in America.

Starring in this fabulous event, for the first time ever in Orange County, are the world famous Rockettes®.
Smiles and laughter will come to you when you watch Santa spark a frenzy. The big guy lit up the stage and turned up the heat as he rock-and-rolled! Then your eyes will light up more as The Radio City Rockettes tapped a new classic. And, the classic, “ The Nutcracker” came to life and wooden soldiers stood proud while they performed. Then Christmas in New York will come to you as you stroll past the store windows on Fifth Avenue and marvel at the giant tree in Rockefeller Center. You’ll then find out how Santa Claus can be in so many places at once on Christmas Eve? Mrs. Claus will bring you warmth and laughter as she reassured her helpers that Santa has never missed a Christmas Eve yet.
If you ever wondered what Santa’s workshop looks like, this show will take you to a wondrous visit to the North Pole - starring Santa Claus, his elves, singers, dancers, and The Rockettes as dancing ragdolls!
That’s not all, chiming bells have long been an uplifting and joyful sound, resonating across the land as a symbol of holiday joy. As all the lights sparkle, Winter Wonderland filled with the magic of bells come to life. The Rockettes and the entire company ring in the spirit of this Christmas season.
The grand finale ended with The Living Nativity (presented at Radio City Music Hall since 1933). The depiction of this timeless story will be a moving and memorable experience for you when you hear songs of “ Silent Night,” “ O Little Town of Bethlehem,” “ The First Noel,” “ We Three Kings,” “ O Come All Ye Faithful,” and “ Hark, the Herald Angels Sing.”
The gorgeous, long legged dancers are inspiring -- their extraordinary synchronization will keep you wanting more. The Radio City Rockettes performed with a signature precision and will delight every new audience.
