About Midwinter Revels: The Feast of Fools - A Medieval Celebration of the Solstice
Midwinter Revels: The Feast of Fools takes the audience on a colorful journey to Medieval Europe. At the Feast of Fools, everything is topsy-turvy by design; rulers are temporarily deposed by servants, wit triumphs over power, and a Lord of Misrule finds himself steering the ship of state. This musical adventure features vibrant processionals, lively carols, delicate harmonies, vigorous dances, and a generous ritual serving of the wild and the holy. On the shortest day of the year, anything is possible! Stuffed with fierce dragons, intricate dances, unholy fools, and resonant Medieval music, Midwinter Revels is a unique experience for audiences of all ages. Featured performers include David Coffin, René Collins, Susan Dibble, Eliza Fichter, Roger Reed, Vincent Siders, and Laurel Swift, as well as musicians Karen Burciaga, Barbara Allen Hill, Ben Matus, and Hideki Yamaya. Midwinter Revels: The Feast of Fools also marks Patrick Swanson’s final Revels production, after serving for 34 years as artistic director. As always, audience members will be encouraged to sing and dance along as Revels marks the Winter Solstice and looks ahead to a bright new year! Join us for our 53rd year in Harvard University's historic Sanders Theatre for one of Boston's most beloved holiday traditions.
