Trans-Siberian Orchestra will celebrate its first 15 years of touring with an encore and final performance of its multi-platinum rock opera, “The Lost Christmas Eve.”
TSO will return to State College for its 2013 Winter Tour, featuring an evening of arena rock at 8 p.m. Nov. 15.
TSO, whose phenomena has grown year after year, has played more than 1,500 shows for more than 10 million fans in the past 15 years. The unprecedented fan driven growth is a testament to TSO founder Paul O’Neill’s vision of “rock theater,” an amalgamation of Broadway storytelling with the spectacle of rock.
For one final year, audiences will get to experience the modern Charles Dickens-like classic, “The Lost Christmas Eve.” Following the 2012 premiere of this acclaimed rock opera, critics called it “a must see for any music lover,” “a rock ’n’ roll holiday celebration worth seeing” and an “unrivaled spectacle of sight and sound.”
“The Lost Christmas Eve” features a diverse soundtrack fusing elements of rock, classical, folk, R&B and theatrical-styled music.
