Rocky Mountain Revels - The Christmas Revels: An Irish Celebration of the Winter Solstice
Celebrate the season through music, dance, and drama. An eagerly awaited holiday tradition, the Christmas Revels returns with a show steeped in Irish music, dance and story-telling. Join us aboard the RMS Carpathia as we share the hopes and dreams of families seeking a better life in America. These hardy souls engage us with foot-stomping jigs and reels, heart-pounding step dancing, and haunting harp music. Our spirited chorus of adults and children will capture your hearts and set the stage for the holidays! This year's Christmas Revels will draw you into the celebration with audience sing-alongs, Mummer's Play and Lord of the Dance. Popular local Irish musicians and award winning step dancers set your blood pumping and your heart singing!
John Langstaff founded Revels, Inc. in Cambridge MA in 1971 to celebrate the seasons and welcome the return of the light through songs, dances and stories from traditional cultures.
