The Midwinter Revels, a lively mid-winter celebration of the Winter
Solstice, returns to Tacoma’s Rialto Theater in December. This year it is
set in 19th c. Mexico - a swirling spirited celebration, joyful, colorful,
funny, tender, magical. We’re thrilled to feature longtime Revels friend Bill
Johns and new Revels friend Marleyne Hernández who bring us the heartfelt
story of a young woman reclaiming her Mexican heritage. Also featured is
impressive folk band Trío Guadalevín – singing in several languages and
playing a wonderful array of instruments – possibly, but not limited to,
guitar, vihuela, jarana, quinta huapanguera, bendir, bombo, teponatzli,
cajón pandereta. Joining them are Bailadores de Bronce dancers, Revels own
Adult and Children’s Choruses, the Seattle Brass Ensemble, and more.

Expect the vibrant colors and rhythms of Mexico, a hilarious La Pastorela,
and the Nahuatl story of Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe. As always, it
’s a joyous celebration for family and friends - the perfect December
gathering.

B.J. Douglas once again directs the production with Assistant Stage
Director Michelle Matlock, Music Director Megan Oberfield. Set design by Martin
Christoffel. Costume design by Alex Lewington.
