The DVD is like a mini-Christmas movie. Here's a review:
"Trans-Siberian Orchestra. One great band, one amazing concept. This DVD contains music taken from the bands first two
albums. [Christmas Eve and Other Stories & The Christmas Attic.] The DVD contains a nice mix of the bands original
music plus a great little story intertwined to go along with it. The story is that of a run-away girl, played by Allie Sheridan,
who, to escape the cold one night enters an abandoned theatre. Inside she meets The Caretaker, played by Ossie Davis.
While inside he introduces her to an amazing show only the likes of angels [actually the spirits and ghosts of the theatre]
could have performed. The show is that of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. In the act they are joined by Jewel singing "Hark!
The Herald Angels Sing," and by Michael Crawford singing "O Holy Night." The Caretaker uses the imagery of the show
to help the girl to change her life. Such songs as "Good King Joy," "Music Box Blues," "This Christmas Day," and
"Christmas Canon" are performed to wonderful amazement. As well, on some songs the band is joined by a beautiful
children's choir. Hearing them alone will bring a tear to your eye. Some complain about the length of the DVD. Sure, it may
only be 46 minutes long, but it is a 46 minute adventure that is well worth it. The T.S.O. have done an excellent job of
telling a story while showing the kind of music they produce. The tale is heart-warming, the music is emotionally intense
and this is one DVD that is good any time of the year. And the best part is that you can share with others besides the
ghosts on Christmas Eve."
