The Christmas Revels is an incomparable holiday show that observes the longest night of the year - the winter solstice - with a blend of ancient folk rituals, songs and dances from a diverse cultural canvas. The result is a celebratory theatrical production. One doesn't just "go to" the Revels; one participates in a wholly unique experience that is a fundamental part of the Bay Area holiday calendar. The Christmas Revels is steeped in the creation of sacred moments and kinship amongst strangers. At the Revels, the audience is asked to not only hear the music, but to make music, and to leave their seats to dance through the aisles!
