Radio City Music Hall during the holiday season
Please Note: The tour departs by motorcoach from downtown Washington, DC with a designated secondary pick-up outside the city. Content delivered by the study leader on the way to the destination, after the secondary pick-up, is an integral part of the study tour experience. Meeting the group once the tour is en route is discouraged.
Proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required for participation on all tours; additionally, current CDC and Smithsonian COVID-19 guidelines (at the time of the tour) will be followed, including but not limited to masks on the bus and indoors.
There’s no more iconic holiday performance in New York than Radio City Music Hall’s famed Christmas Spectacular. And there’s no better way to see the precision dancing of the Rockettes than from prime orchestra seats in the fabulous art deco theater where the show has been a tradition since 1933.
Before the theatrical magic begins at a matinee performance, get a special behind-the-scenes VIP tour of the Music Hall, covering the stunning 1930s interiors and art, the Great Stage, Mighty Wurlitzer Organ, and an opportunity to meet a Rockette along the way.
A gourmet box lunch is served en route; dinner is on your own during 2 hours of free time after the performance.
Program includes performance, behind-the-scenes tour, lunch, premiere motorcoach, services of a Smithsonian representative, program itinerary and handout, and all gratuities. Tickets are in the orchestra section, rows GG-JJ; cost of the Music Hall tickets is not refundable over and above the usual refund policy.
