The Trans-Siberian Orchestra is bringing its expanded show Ghosts of Christmas Eve to Ontario – Orange County Register

After missing a season in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra has fully returned to its annual holiday tradition of epic Christmas-themed arena-rock extravaganzas.

This year, TSO is performing “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” the 2001 concert DVD that combines the most popular songs from their 1996 debut, “Christmas Eve and Other Stories,” and its 1998 follow-up, “The Christmas Attic.” Since that concert originally aired on PBS stations, it has become one of TSO’s most popular releases. The show comes to Toyota Arena in Ontario for two performances this holiday season on Saturday, December 3 at 3:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and includes additional TSO hits.

While The Ghosts of Christmas Eve will take up most of the first half of the show, the second part draws on selections from across the TSO catalogue. Since many of the most popular songs will be performed as part of “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” Al Pitrelli, musical director and guitarist for TSO’s western US, and Jeff Plate, drummer for TSO’s eastern company, said they ended up being seated for songs would have this year that TSO has not performed often on past tours.

During an interview last month, the duo said they couldn’t talk about how this year’s visual effects and set design will be bigger or different since they hadn’t joined the band for production rehearsals yet. TSO is known for its over-the-top scenes, lighting and elaborate pyrotechnics, and both Pitrelli and Plate said they were excited to see the full stage production for the first time.

“You look up and I always feel like a 15-year-old stepping into this arena for the first time,” Pitrelli said as the finished productions came together. “It really turns you back into a teenager. But this time I’m not being chased away by security or the police, so it’s a lot more fun to just stand there and look up and say, ‘That’s great.'” The Trans-Siberian Orchestra is bringing its expanded show Ghosts of Christmas Eve to Ontario – Orange County Register
