In celebration of “Christmas in July,” it was announced today that America’s most beloved holiday show, the Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes, presented by QVC, is returning to the Great Stage at Radio City Music Hall from November 17, 2023 through January 1, 2024. The 2023 Christmas Spectacular will again feature the fan-favorite scene “Dance of the Frost Fairies,” which was reimagined in 2022 and features the Rockettes as fantastical winged fairies, performing alongside fairy-drones that dance high above the audience. Radio City Music Hall is the onlyplace in the world where audiences can experience the immersive magic of the Christmas Spectacular and “Dance of the Frost Fairies.”

A staple of the holidays in New York City, the Christmas Spectacular stars the incomparable Radio City Rockettes and features nine show-stopping numbers throughout the 90-minute production. The awe-inspiring show features intricate choreography and thrilling performances that leave audiences with a sense of wonder and amazement. Last year, the Christmas Spectacular debuted a newly reimagined lyrical number “Dance of the Frost Fairies,” turning Radio City into a wintry wonderland with the Rockettes performing as whimsical fairies while fairy-drones magically fly throughout the Music Hall. Since it opened at Radio City in 1933, the Christmas Spectacular has brought holiday joy to more than 70 million people from around the world.

Founded in 1925 and celebrating their 100th anniversary in 2025, the Radio City Rockettes are the longest-running precision dance company in America. The Rockettes are world-renowned for their unity, athleticism and iconic precision style combining elements of ballet, jazz, and tap, as well as techniques of modern and contemporary dance. In addition to the Christmas Spectacular, the Rockettes perform annually in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Christmas in Rockefeller Center tree lighting, and have appeared as part of some of the biggest events in entertainment, including the Tony Awards, the MTV VMAs, the NYC Pride Parade, and Saturday Night Live. Most recently, the Rockettes were featured in the Hallmark movie A Holiday Spectacular and performed with Mariah Carey in her holiday special filmed at Madison Square Garden, Mariah Carey: Merry Christmas to All!

The 2023 Christmas Spectacular is proud to be presented by QVC. Last October, the Rockettes kicked off their partnership with the world leader in video commerce by appearing live from Radio City Music Hall for a surprise announcement during QVC’s top-rated “In the Kitchen with David” broadcast. The collaboration continued during the annual “Non-Stop Holiday Party” QVC’s biggest live shopping event of the year with a performance at Radio City and live interviews with Jill Martin, lifestyle expert, TV personality, and founder of QVC BumbleBella by Jill Martin. As part of this partnership, QVC is featured prominently in the Christmas Spectacular’s fan-favorite “New York at Christmas” Times Square scene and in the holiday décor and displays onsite at RadioCity Music Hall, giving the brand prime exposure to the nearly one million people who attend the show every year, in addition to the millions of Rockettes fans worldwide on social media. The affiliation between these two holiday icons is a perfect pairing – there are no other productions like the immersive magic of the ChristmasSpectacular at Radio City Music Hall, and there’s no retail experience like the combination of live video shopping and entertainment provided by QVC.
