Our 31st annual celebration of the Winter Solstice harkens back to ancient Thrace
– legendary home of Orpheus, Bringer of Music, whose evocative notes open our
story. His melodies scatter to the regions of Bulgaria, Greece, Thracian Turkey,
and beyond, where each culture shapes them into traditions of its own. Revel
with families of an imagined village where these colorful folk traditions weave
together. Gather in the village square to celebrate the turning of the year!
Amid a swirl of beautiful costumes, meet iconic folk characters including giant
Bulgarian masked kukeri, the Thracian "Christmas camel", and the
– goblins who make trouble during the 12 days of Christmas and are vanquished on
Epiphany. Celebrate with familiar Revels songs and sing-alongs, seasonal carols
from Thrace and beyond, thrilling choral arrangements of ancient folk melodies,
haunting Slavonic harmonies, fiery instrumentals and folk dances, and a
rollicking mummers’ play featuring folk characters from the region. Our cast of
over 100 singers, dancers, actors and instrumentalists, ages 8–85, includes our
Revels choruses and Washington Revels Brass plus an extraordinary array of folk
artists from our featured cultures. For discounted tickets for
