One-hundred Intel drones will take flight during this year’s production of the Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes in New York City.
The Madison Square Garden Co. announced that Intel has joined the creative team for the 2018 production of the show, presented by Chase. The Intel Shooting Star mini drones will create a light show over the Great Stage of Radio City Music Hall by using choreographed movements to create holiday-themed silhouettes in the all-new finale scene, “Christmas Lights.”
“We are thrilled to announce that Intel has joined our creative team. Intel’s innovative technology and unique expertise helps propel our ambitious vision into reality with the first-of-its-kind large-scale drone performance in a theatrical setting,” says Victoria Parker, executive vice president of productions for The Madison Square Garden Co.
Intel will perform at the approximately 200 shows at Radio City Music Hall from Nov. 9 to through Jan. 1. Other Intel Shooting Star performances have taken place at the Olympics, CES 2018, Super Bowl LI, Walt Disney World, Dodger Stadium and Coachella.
“We are constantly exploring new venues for Intel’s drone light shows. It is an honor to partner with Radio City Music Hall to integrate Intel’s innovative technology into the iconic Christmas Spectacular,” comments Natalie Cheung, general manager of Intel’s drone light shows. “We customize our light show animations for each venue and create performances with stunning visuals powered by technology that can produce billions of color combinations. Weaving Intel drones into this classic holiday tradition is something we hope the audience remembers for a lifetime.”
