About the Event

Now in its 14th season, The Christmas Revels is a lively, entertaining theatrical event that features a company of more than 60 singers, actors, dancers, and instrumentalists wearing gorgeous traditional costumes in a fully staged production. The show changes each year to present the music, dance, and storytelling of different countries and centuries. This year’s production highlights a special time in Santa Barbara’s own history, portraying Anita de la Guerra’s wedding festivities that take place during the holiday season of 1835. Richard Henry Dana and his shipmates are invited to attend the celebration; they share their sea shanties, English carols, and mumming antics while being introduced to the fandango, mission chants, Las Posadas, and traditional Spanish music and dance. With Alta California customs, Chumash story-telling, and engrossing events from Dana’s book, Two Years Before the Mast, The Christmas Revels is an exhilarating holiday experience for the entire family!
