Photo Coverage: Rockettes Welcome Animals on First Day of Rehearsal
The camels, sheep and donkey reported to Radio City Music Hall today for their first day of rehearsals for the 2013 Radio City Christmas Spectacular and their starring role in the "Living Nativity." The "Living Nativity" has been a beloved part of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular since its inception in 1933.
The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is truly the epicenter of Christmas in New York and the 2013 production promises to lift spirits and create lasting memories for new audiences as well as for families that have made this cherished production a holiday tradition. The Rockettes will shine like never before in dazzling dance numbers, classic favorites and a breathtaking new number, "Snow," that will transform the Great Stage into a glistening winter wonderland. There is no better place to be this holiday season than with friends and loved ones at the Radio City Christmas Spectacular - where every moment is magic! The Radio City Christmas Spectacular, presented by Chase, will run from November 8 - December 30, 2013. TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW!
