The Christmas Revels 2017The Christmas Revels 2017 - A Venetian Celebration of the Winter Solstice

A holiday tradition for nearly five decades, The Christmas Revels is a joyful theatrical celebration of the winter solstice that travels the world each year showcasing cultural traditions including music, dance, folktales and rituals.

This year’s holiday treat takes us to Renaissance Venice, crossroads of the world!

The Doge of Venice has had it. It is time for the solstice and the Feast of the Seven Fishes and everyone wants his opinion - merchants, lawyers, politicians, artists, even the fishwives want him to rule on who makes the best spaghetti putanesca. So he is going to take a little unauthorized vacation and meet some of his more lowly subjects.

The wild adventures ahead involve reckless actors, jailbreaks, itinerant musicians, English Morris men and maybe even the Spanish Armada! A beloved holiday tradition since 1971, The Christmas Revels features luscious music, tricky sets and gorgeous costumes, superb musical guests, a tuneful, dancing chorus, some familiar Revels touchstones, and street kids who sing like angels. See you there!

ORDER TICKETS at or by phone through the Harvard Box Office at 617-496-2222 (Tue-Sun 12-6pm).

The Christmas Revels performance lasts about 2.5 hours.

Inclusive Mish-mash Of Cultures
On December 12, 2009 the showing at 3 PM was amusing after several decades of not going. As a child memories were quite different and much more Northern European with the old familiars from the second half of the Christmas Revels. Still though there was that sense of community through the rough and tumble. The group has gotten larger though it seems the audience has become more select. I remember looking up as a child, but now as an adult I am looking down from the Balcony and bringing all sorts of other experience to the tried and true. I still found it quite amusing, though not what I expected. This is defintitely for those with hearts of children. Heart warming and down-to-earth I find my soul resounding in the new generation of faces in this place, that once was my playground, now the beat turns to an attentive diverse crowd as is the stage players.
