THE REVELS: A Winter Solstice Celebration, “Tales from Ellis Island”, Mid-December
December 1743: The Laird's neighbors gathered at his great manor-house to celebrate Hogmanay, or New Year's Eve. Tempers flared as the Clans converged, then subsided when the guests mingled, singing much-loved melodies, taking a cup together, dancing lively reels, and relating favorite stories. Suddenly, an unwelcome visitor appeared. Then, a mystery guest was revealed. Finally, a child's questions elicited a true understanding of the Yuletide.
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 Revels, a joyful theatrical celebration of the winter solstice that travels the world each year showcasing cultural traditions including music, dance, and folktales.
