Event Details

Our 2018 show, Nordic Lights, features haunting melodies from Scandinavian lands and folk tales of trolls, an enchanted fox, and brave children. ‘Tis the Solstice and the Christmas season when the troll Grylla and her Yule lads trick the villagers to steal bad children, and only a brave girl accompanied by a magical fox can save them. Join our villagers as they endure the long cold of the Shortest Day, encountering fear and darkness. Together they will rely on courage, community, and music as clear and crisp as new-fallen snow to see the through the night.

 

Revels celebrates the seasons and cycles of human life through the arts, the songs and dances, and the stories from traditional cultures. Audiences recognize the events, desires, and dilemmas from another place and time as their own. The Christmas Revels welcomes the return of the light.
