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 raved, calling it “Powerful, captivating……”, “…a must see for any music lover” , “…a Rock n’ Roll holiday celebration worth seeing!” and an “unrivaled spectacle of sight and sound.” Taking the audience on a journey into the “Capra-esque” world of TSO, creator / producer Paul O’Neill, “The Lost Christmas Eve” fuses elements of Rock, Classical, Folk, R&B, and Broadway styled music into its diverse soundtrack. Encompassing 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 “The Lost Christmas Eve” is a holiday favorite for the entire family.
Since their debut in 1996, TSO has defied the rules of an ever-changing music industry. Year after year, the group has ranked in the Top 10 for both gross revenues and attendance, according to Pollstar magazine. Having played live to over one million fans each year TSO witnessed a 15% increase in sales alone in 2012, transforming them into a year round tradition that’s here to stay. Having sold in excess of 9 million albums and performed to more than 10 million fans, in 150+ cities worldwide, the band’s rock operas have defined them as the leader in Rock Theater, being regarded as a mix of The Who’s “Tommy”, Andrew Lloyd Weber’s musicals, and Pink Floyd’s expansive light show.
