JOIN US THIS CHRISTMAS IN A VIRTUAL CELEBRATION
A Hero is welcomed into a musical urban world and asked to join in the celebration.
They are a bit nervous, and refuse to participate. And as they continue to refuse and back away, the music begins to fade, the people wander off, and the world grows steadily darker. Through a magical portal, the Hero came to find their way to music and color, but each time they step back from participation, they are returned to the dark and increasingly un-musical landscape. Growing worried, the Hero tries to make music, to make rhythm, but it’s too late. Now, convinced there is nothing they can do to bring back light and music, they collapse in the dark under a bridge.
And they dream. Of a dragon, a doctor, and St. George. Of a sword dance. Of the magical rebirth of light and music.
When they wake, they know they can bring back the light. And the music.
And, with the help of a familiar storyteller and some beautiful music, they do.
We aren’t selling tickets this year, but rather asking for donations to support Portland Revels as we bring back the light as safely as possible until we can return to celebrate live and in-person.
Your donation in any amount will give you access to the 2021 Virtual Christmas Revels. Watch any one of our three live-stream performances with guest hosts or view it on your own schedule.
