Trans-Siberian Orchestra at Denver and Colorado Springs
Going to a show of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra is an amazing experience!Â If you thought it was just an orchestra playing Christmas music, you are in for a big surprise.Â The Trans-Siberian Orchestra is known for its progressive rock sound.Â Their music will definitely get you in the Christmas Spirit, but you will also be amazed at the dancing done with instruments, the laser show, light displays and other special effects. (The year we went, snow fell from the ceiling.)
Like me, you may have become familiar with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra after the YouTube video several years ago of a home Christmas display synched to one of their most popular songs, Wizards in Winter.
Lucky for Colorado, we have two different days to watch thisÂ extravaganza right before Christmas.

The show is divided into two parts.Â The first part revolves around Christmas and is presented in a narrated story.Â The second part showcases their other music including Night Castle and Beethoven’s Last Night. You may be surprised to learn there are actually two groups on tour.Â There is such heavy demand for these shows that, starting in the year 2000, they created two touring groups.Â Whether you are on the East Coast or the West Coast, you are guaranteed the same incredible experience.Â
It takesÂ 15 hours to set up for each preformance. Founder Paul O’Neill said, â€œThere’s no second-class seats at a Trans-Siberian Orchestra show. I want people to walk out of our shows speechless and…still not believing what they have seen was possible.”
