The Christmas Revels: Commedia Italiana
December 16, 2016 - December 21, 2016
The music, dance and comedy of the Italian Renaissance come alive in this year’s Christmas Revels. The Doge of Venice, bored with his reign, runs away with a Commedia Dell’ Arte troupe – and zaniness ensues.
This show features the beautiful music and costumes of the Italian Renaissance, and features some of the best comedic actors in Portland. It’s a feast for the senses and will be sure to leave you laughing.
And of course we’ll have the many Revels traditions you know and love – Sword Dances! Clowns! Abbot’s Bromley! And, this year, the 12 days of Christmas.
Join us for the theatrical and choral magic that is Portland’s Christmas Revels!
Performances will be held at St. Mary’s Academy Theater, conveniently located near wonderful downtown restaurants and public transportation.
