The Radio City “Christmas Spectacular,” starring the iconic Rockettes, has been canceled for the first time in its nearly 100-year history due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was scheduled to run from November 6 to January 3.

MSG Entertainment, which owns Radio City Music Hall, announced Tuesday that the popular show, known for iconic dance numbers like “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers” and “Living Nativity,” would not go on this year. All tickets will be automatically refunded.”We are disappointed for everyone involved with the show, as well as for the many fans who make the Christmas Spectacular a cherished part of their holiday tradition,” the company said in a statement Tuesday. The “Christmas Spectacular” first made its debut in 1933. The company has plans to bring the beloved show, which has been seen by over 75 million people, back next winter.
