2018 Christmas Revels' Production, "Ancient Mysteries of Andalusian Spain"

2018 Christmas Revels' Production,

Sunday, Dec 9, 2018 at 1:00pm

Scottish Rite Auditorium, 1547 Lakeside Drive


Each mid-winter, the Revels brings to life a grand celebration of traditions and cultures from around the world.

We create joy with the songs, dances, and stories—present in every culture—that mark the turning of the year in all its forms. We build community and connection through our unique theatrical production, connecting audience and performers, and reminding us that, within our diversity and across generations, there is a beautiful continuity of human experience!

For 2018, our Revels story begins in 1600 in that part of Spain called Andalusia. Three individuals, a young Moorish woman, a Sephardic Jew, and a Castilian scullery maid happen to meet, each armed with a mysterious clue that is guiding them on a quest. They are all hoping to find their way back through time to the era of La Convivencia, a time when, as they understand it, all three cultures, Muslim, Jewish, and Christian, lived in a spirit of tolerance and peace.

Directed to pay attention to the celestial bodies and swept up in the Revels celebration of the Solstice, they learn how each culture celebrates the Sun, the Moon, and the stars in song, dance, poetry, and story. By looking to the heavens, they learn the secret of finding the Convivencia. They come to realize that despite the things that make each of us different and unique, in the end, we all live under the same sky.

As expected, all of this tuneful excitement comes studded with Revels touchstones including The Abbots Bromley Antler Dance, Sussex Mummers' Carol, and The Lord of the Dance.
