The Christmas Revels

MorrisDancersInSnow

The Revels are performers that come together to celebrate traditional song and dance, inviting the audience to join in as active participants. Their annual Christmas Revels celebrates the season at the Sanders Theatre in Cambridge from December 13-27.

The 43rd annual Christmas Revels is set in Northern Spain along the pilgrimage route of the Camino de Santiago. As the main character, the Everyman, makes this journey while the shortest day of the year approaches, he meets interesting people and hears wonderful Spanish music, as well as more familiar songs. Performers include the well-known storyteller Jay O’Callahan as Everyman, along with many musicians, singers, actors, and dancers. The video below illustrates the kind of revelry you can expect at the Revels Christmas celebration!

The Christmas Revels. December 13-27. Sanders Theatre, 45 Quincy Street, Cambridge. Ticket prices range from $27-$57 for adults and $15-$42 for children. For more information or to order tickets, visit the Revels website or call the Harvard Box Office at 617-496-2222.
