As part of its annual winter tour, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra is visiting Cincinnati for a musical retelling of a holiday story, recounted in the orchestra’s unique audio-visual way. This year’s performance is “The Ghosts of Christmas Eve,” which follows a young girl who runs away from home and finds herself among the ghosts of an abandoned vaudeville theater. The story includes Christmas classics like “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Music Box Blues” and “This Christmas Day.” A portion of ticket proceeds benefits Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, Toys for Tots, St. Joseph’s Orphanage and The Music Resource Center. Tickets purchased online come with a digital copy of the orchestra’s recently released studio album.
4 and 8 p.m. Friday. $35.50-$63. U.S. Bank Arena, 100 Broadway St., Downtown, usbankarena.com.
