MIDTOWN, Manhattan (WABC) -- The "Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes" is unleashing new groundbreaking technology in this year's show, the first of its kind for a theater performance.

"Christmas Lights" uses choreographed movements to produce holiday-themed silhouettes over the Great Stage of Radio City.

The "Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes" will run from November 9 through January 1, 2019 at Radio City Music Hall.
