This year, we will be offering a virtual Revels show that gets back to some classic Revels material:
we will be presenting a theatrical performance of English Renaissance and medieval music (filmed in the Marjorie Luke Theater, with audio recorded at a masked, socially distanced outdoor recording session) of a short, hour-long Revels show that will replicate the Revels experience as closely as we can given the current guidelines, which make in-person arts events impossible.
For a donation of $50 (through paypal or check), your household gets access to the show starting December 21st (hosted on vimeo). Additionally, you will get an invite to a pre-show gathering, hosted over Zoom. Our music director will teach some of the songs, and you can have a chance to chat with other Revels fans.
Hosted on Vimeo, starting December 21st, 2020.
Pre-show Zoom Revelry at 5:00pm (PST), December 21st.
Virtual ticket for a household (to be emailed with link and password before the show) included with a $50 donation.
The COVID crisis has made our annual Equinox concert impossible – in its stead we present this musical presentation, featuring Revels Music Director Erin McKibben, and special guests Josh Jenkins and Luis Moreno!
Santa Barbara Revels celebrates a diverse range of cultural traditions by blending music, dance and storytelling in our staged celebrations of the Winter Solstice and other seasons.
We present a number of public events throughout the year. From concerts like Equinox to more informal community pub-sings, there is always an upcoming Revels happening.
The highlight of our season is The Christmas Revels, a joyful theatrical celebration of the winter solstice that travels the world each year showcasing cultural traditions including music, dance, and folktales.
