Portland Revels “Christmas Revels, The Ghosts of Haddon Hall, An English Country Celebration of the Winter Solstice” performances will be at the beautiful Newmark Theatre in downtown Portland!
It’s our 25th year, and ghosts will return to haunt the stage during Portland’s annual Christmas Revels performance as we inhabit Haddon Hall, the setting for the original Christmas Revels! This year’s performance transports us back to an imaginary day when the Duke, his wife and his children enter the castle after two centuries of presumed emptiness, expecting to demolish it, only to find it inhabited by the spirits of all those who have ever celebrated the winter solstice within its walls.
Portland Revel’s original fool, Burl Ross will be joined by other talented actors including two child alumni from our children’s chorus. Gayle and Phil Neuman, masters of early music, will join our regular musicians and the talented volunteer chorus to present a wide-ranging feast of music primarily from the late medieval through Renaissance eras, the same periods that inspired the original Christmas Revels. And of course, there will be opportunities for our audience to get involved!
