A Medieval Celebration of the Solstice


About This Year’s Production
Our 53rd Midwinter Revels drops us into the colorful medieval Feast of Fools, where everything is topsy-turvy by design. The status quo quickly becomes the status disruptus as the body politic officially lets off steam. Rulers are temporarily deposed by servants, wit triumphs over power, and a fool finds himself steering the ship of state. This musical feast will feature vibrant processionals, lively carols, delicate harmonies, vigorous dances, and a full ritual serving of the wild and the holy. Come sing favorites old and new and dance your way with us into the lobby of Sanders Theatre and out into the brand new year! On this shortest day of the year, what could possibly go wrong?

Bring the Whole Family! Do you have a group of 15+ people who are interested in attending Midwinter Revels? Revels offers fee-free tickets to all groups of 15+. Bring your extended family, your community group, or just 14 of your closest friends and celebrate the solstice with song and dance! Learn more about group sales here.

Location: Harvard University’s Sanders Theatre in Memorial Hall. 45 Quincy Street, Cambridge MA
