Trans-Siberian Orchestra Rockin' the Opera

The rock opera is alive and well;

December 11 in Greensboro, North Carolina the Trans-Siberian Orchestra played the first of two shows in one evening. Scheduled to play Sunday, Dec. 9, they had to delay due to the severe snow storm that hit the east coast. Trans-Siberian Orchestra has been playing seasonal operas to sold-out crowds around the globe. With multiple Platinum-selling albums (10 million units worldwide) they've brought their rock operas to more than 100 million people in eighty plus cities over a twenty year period. Regularly performing up to ten shows in a six-day period, featuring elaborate stage and light shows. With over three dozen alternating musicians, of similar appearance, backup singers, storytellers, and a small seven-person string orchestra drawn from local talent in every city. They leave crowds in awe with over the top performances that last up to two hours and sets that include massive disappearing stages, numerous laser and light banks. Smoke machines, multiple rows of pyro, spark ejectors and massive projection screens round out the $ twenty million dollar production that is equaled only by Pink Floyd.
