A New York Christmas is Coming to Omaha
Stepping onto the bustling streets of New York City is a rush of excitement. And, no season in New York City is more exciting than Christmas. There are bells ringing, horns blaring and brilliant holiday decorations everywhere you look. My family would make the short trip from New Jersey to New York each and every Christmas season. There was Rockefeller Center with its iconic ice sheet and glittering Christmas Tree to see. Then, a trip to Macy’s was in order, to take in its dazzling window displays and decorations. Next, we would hop into St. Patrick’s Cathedral, lighting candles and staring up into the breathtaking heights of the ceiling until we got dizzy. But, the main purpose of our trip was always to see The Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall. There isn’t another stage production that captures the magic of New York City at Christmas quite like The Christmas Spectacular.
It was my family’s tradition to make our yearly pilgrimage on Christmas Eve. I believe traditions hold such an important place in our hearts because of the feelings they stir up. For me, nothing captures the magical feelings of Christmas quite like this show. From the opening chords of the overture to the final moments of the Nativity Scene, I was always mesmerized. I am beyond thrilled at the chance to share this tradition with my own children when Omaha Performing Arts presents The Christmas Spectacular Starring The Rockettes at the Orpheum Theater in November. I know it will be the perfect way to begin our Christmas season and yours too!
