This year's Christmas Revels harkens back to ancient Thrace. Amid a swirl of beautiful costumes, meet iconic folk characters including giant Bulgarian masked kukeri; the Thracian "Christmas camel"; and the kallikantzari, goblins who make trouble during the 12 days of Christmas. Celebrate with familiar Revels sing-alongs, seasonal carols, thrilling choral arrangements, fiery instrumentals, traditional dances, and a rollicking mummers' play. Revels' cast of over 100 singers, dancers, instrumentalists and actors, ages 8-85, includes an extraordinary array of folk artists from three cultures, plus (traveling from Bulgaria) celebrated Thracian singer Tanya Dosseva and master kaval player Lyuben Dossev.
