[DC Local] 2011 Washington Christmas Revels
solstice
evcelt
The Revels are "a celebration of the Winter Solstice - a masque of traditional and ritual dances, processionals, carols and drama." It's always an amazing and emotional experience, and monsteralice and I use it to start our Yuletide celebrations off in the best possible way. This year, "[o]ur 29th annual celebration of the winter solstice harkens back over 1,000 years to the confluence of Moorish, Sephardic and Iberian cultures in medieval Andalusia. Led by the antics of two fools, and joined by guest musicians Trio Sefardi and Layali El Andalus ("Andalusian Nights" in Arabic), we celebrate the legacy of the extraordinary flowering of arts and culture that began there and extended to much of the world for centuries thereafter. Presenting the three cultures together on stage, we honor the symbol that Andalusia has become (however imperfect the reality) of the ideal of a greater tolerance and acceptance among different cultures and religions."

It's at the Lisner Auditorium, at GWU in DC. It's Metro-accessible, and there is pay parking close by.

monsteralice and I will be attending the December 10th 2pm performance (as will castalusoria and her aunt). We usually get brunch beforehand- in the past this has been at the nearby Bertucci's, but we're open to suggestions... we're also open to doing something after.

Tickets are on sale; they're available online at washingtonrevels.tix.com or by phone at 1-800-595-4849 (online is cheaper). Our seats are in row NN, center terrace, if that matters to you.

Hope you can join us!
