Many thanks to Marta Zekan at KING-FM for this interview with Christmas Revels Director       BJ Douglas and producer Mary Lynn about this year’s Christmas Revels and Puget Sound Revels.

Here’s a sneak preview of this year’s Christmas Revels :   The Christmas Revels program

Set in the glorious Italian Renaissance, this year’s Christmas Revels combines gorgeous costumes, handsome set, heavenly music, hilarious commedia, magic, a total eclipse of the sun (!) and Copernicus’s crazy idea that the earth is a planet spinning through the cosmos and circling the sun. Chaos ensues when a troupe of commedia actors show up in the thriving city-state of Salerno and the Prince disapproves of the entertainment they provide for his festa. Featured is Tony Curry, because Tony (like Copernicus) knows how to set things spinning! He joins Mark Rabe, Jon Lutyens, Shulamit Kleinerman, The Seattle Brass Ensemble, I nostri cantanti – grandi e piccolo (our adult and children’s choruses) singing wild, wonderful and meltingly beautiful music. Don’t miss this festive headlong whirl into the holidays.
