The Christmas Revels – A French-Canadian Celebration!
Friday, December 8, 2017 – 7:00PM @ Lisner Auditorium
For our 35th annual production, journey with us to Trois-Rivières, a charming town in southern Québec. In the late December chill, the glow of hearth fires warms the spirits of the villagers as they prepare for the time of celebration–le temps des Fêtes! The timber business is thriving and the Hudson’s Bay Company is paying good money for beaver pelts. A group of young men prepares to leave home to seek profit and adventure—to be voyageurs. They paddle a huge canoe across rivers and lakes, deep into the wild Canadian woods, singing as they go. This energetic Québécois winter celebration features carols, wild dancing, and foot-stomping instrumentals, blending old French traditions with New World ingenuity. Be prepared for a deal with the devil and a ride in a flying canoe!
The performance is FREE and will be held on Friday, December 8th at the George Washington University Lisner Auditorium, 730 – 21st and H Streets, NW, Washington, DC.
