Trans-Siberian Orchestra Brings THE LOST CHRISTMAS EVE to Las Vegas' Orleans Arena Today
Trans-Siberian Orchestra is teaming with Hallmark Channel to present the band's multiplatinum rock opera, "The Lost Christmas Eve," at Orleans Arena for two shows today, December 2, sponsored by 97.1 The Point, KOMP 92.3 and Live Nation.
"The Lost Christmas Eve" has been called "a story of loss and redemption" and features a diverse soundtrack fusing elements of rock, classical, folk, Broadway and R&B, taking the audience on a journey into the "Capra-esque" world of creator and producer Paul O'Neill. The show encompasses a rundown hotel, an old toy store, a blues bar, a Gothic cathedral and their respective inhabitants, all intertwined during a single enchanted Christmas Eve in New York City.
"The Lost Christmas Eve" will be performed in its entirety and will feature the hit single, "Wizards in Winter," as well as longtime crowd favorites, "Christmas Nights in Blue" and "Siberian Sleigh Ride." It will be followed by brand new songs from Trans-Siberian Orchestra's recent release, "Dreams of Fireflies (On a Christmas Night)," classics from Trans-Siberian Orchestra's debut album, "Christmas Eve & Other Stories," and the rest of the group's heralded catalogue of rock operas.
Since their debut in 1996, TSO has defied the rules of an ever-changing music industry. Year after year, Trans-Siberian Orchestra has ranked in the Top 10 for both gross revenues and attendance (according to Pollstar magazine) by playing live to more than one million fans annually. Since their inception, the band has sold in excess of 8.5 million albums and performed to more than 9 million fans in more than 150 cities worldwide. The band's rock operas have cemented them as a leader in rock theater, a mix of The Who's "Tommy," Andrew Lloyd Weber's musicals, and Pink Floyd's expansive light show.
Showtimes are 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $33 and can be purchased by calling the Orleans Arena Box Office at 702.284.7777, or by visiting www.orleansarena.com.
