Christmas Revels 2018: Ancient Mysteries of Andalusian Spain

40276250_1642602782506070_2582782032308338688_n.jpg

Our Revels story begins in 1600 in that part of Spain called Andalusia. Three individuals, a young Moorish woman, a Sephardic Jew and an elderly Castilian happen to meet, each armed with a mysterious clue that is guiding them on a quest. They are all hoping to find their way back through time to the era of La Convivencia , a time when, as they understand it, all three cultures, Muslim, Jewish and Christian, lived in a spirit of tolerance and peace.

Directed to pay attention to the celestial bodies, and swept up in the Revels celebration of the Solstice, they learn how each culture celebrates the Sun, the Moon and the stars in song dance, poetry and story. By looking to the heavens, they learn the secret of finding the Convivencia. They come to realize that despite the things that make each of us different and unique, in the end, we all live under the same sky.

December 8th through 16th, 2018 at the Scottish Rite Theater in Oakland, CA.

Friday 8:00 pm.
Saturday 1:00 and 5:00 pm.
Sundays 1:00 and 5:00 pm.
