The production will also include new state-of-the-art digital projection, coupled with the world’s largest flying indoor LED screen. The technology will envelop the audience in a starry-night sky for the musical number “Living Nativity.”
MSGE's executive vice president of productions, Don Simpson, said in a statement, "Through state-of-the-art technology our audiences will be immersed in the warmth and magic of Christmas that only Radio City can deliver.”
The Radio City Christmas Spectacular, presented by Chase, will be interactive, yet it will maintain traditional numbers that have been featured in the show since 1933.
Fan favorites, such as “New York at Christmas,” where the Rockettes board a real double-decker Gray Line tour bus for a tour of Manhattan that culminates in Times Square with a live fireworks display, will continue to be a part of the new production.
Performances run Nov. 11, 2011-Jan. 2, 2012. For more information and tickets, call (866) 858-0007 or visit www.radiocitychristmas.com.
