Houston's 2016 Christmas Revels
Revels Houston presents "A Welsh Celebration of the Winter Solstice," December 16-19, 2016 at the MATCH Center in Midtown Houston. This newest Christmas Revels production in the repertoire, set in the Celtic land of Wales about 100 years ago, will showcase the strong tradition of choral singing in Wales with stunningly beautiful music for voices.
Along with your favorite Revels traditional songs, we will have the Mari Lwyd (The Grey Mare) and also a Welsh version of the Winter Solstice Mummers' Play that features TWO dragons!
It is our pleasure to begin the second 25 years of Revels Houston's colorful history with the new Welsh Christmas Revels. Due to the complete sell out of all shows last year we are adding an additional show this year, and ticket sales will begin in the fall! We hope you will once again join us in celebration of the Winter Solstice.
