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.

TSO founder Paul O’Neill has been working on a concept he likes to call “Rock Theater.” The material for “Rock Theater” began when Paul O’Neill and TSO set their sights on one of the most beloved and important composers the world has ever seen, Ludwig van Beethoven.

TSO creator / writer / producer Paul O’Neill explains, “I was always fascinated by Beethoven. Beethoven did not come from a rich family, made his way to Vienna which, at that time was the capitol of the musical world, and by the time he was 21, was recognized as one of the greatest piano players in the world by the likes of Mozart. By the time he was 25, he realized he was going completely deaf and if he had just crawled into a corner and given up on life, nobody would have judged him harshly. But instead he went on to write some of the greatest music that has ever been created, music that would bring joy, happiness, peace to countless billions of people but, that he himself would never hear.”

O’Neill created a theatrical experience that combined with arena Rock takes this new genre to unprecedented levels. Here is just a sample of what the press had to say about “Beethoven’s Last Night” in concert:

“The show is a symphonic slam…with its intricate plot and dazzling stylistic breadth” – BOSTON HERALD

“The most extravagant tribute from one musician to another could well be ‘Beethoven’s Last Night’. High-tech as it is, it is also heartfelt.” – THE BUFFALO NEWS

Mohegan Sun Arena was ranked the 4th busiest venue in 2009 by Billboard Magazine and was the 2008 recipient of a Country Music Award for “Casino of The Year.” For more information on concerts and other great events at Mohegan Sun, visit mohegansun.com.  For information on this week’s schedule, call the Entertainment and Special Events hotline at 1.888.226.7711, ext. 27163.
