Get ready for an enchanting night of Celtic music and dance in celebration of the holiday season as Brian O'Donovan hosts A Christmas Celtic Sojourn. The host of WGBH's national radio program A Celtic Sojourn has been hosting this live show since 2003, and in that time, it's become a much-anticipated tradition in the Boston area. This year's 11th anniversary show promises to be just as spectacular as ever, with performances by some of the Celtic world's finest performers, including American Irish music pioneers Solas, body percussionist and fiddler Steve Hickman and harpist Maeve Gilchrist. Also hear the distinctive music of Norway as Mariel Vandersteel takes the stage with her eight-string Hardanger fiddle, named after a musically vibrant and distinct part of the country, and watch a performance by the young dancers from the Harney Academy of Irish Dance in Walpole. All this and some surprises too! Let the festive Celtic music and dance lift your spirits this holiday season. Learn More

It was the most beautiful surrealistic and poetic performance I have seen in a long time. A theater as it would have been done by Rene Magritte. Aurelia is a female mix of her great hrandfather and Baster Keaton. Imaginative. Tender. Simply great!
Quotes & Highlights
- “An absolute spellbinder . . .an enchanting dream, and like most vivid reveries, it momentarily colors the way you see the waking world.” --London Daily Telegraph
- “Charm is a much-abused word but Aurélia’s Oratorio has it in spades... an upsidedown, topsy-turvy world that Aurélia opens up, a world where the magic is all in the detail.” --Metro London
- “A show of wit and beauty, with haunting stage images.” --Variety
Aurélia Thierrée was first seen on the A.R.T. stage as a young girl, performing in the Cirque Imaginaire with her parents. Now an actress and acrobat in her own right, Aurélia has charmed audiences around the world with this dazzling display of stage illusion, inspired by the magic of music hall and circus, and co-created with her mother Victoria Thierrée Chaplin.
