Scottish song, dance and folk traditions are alive and well in The Christmas Revels: A Scottish Highlands Celebration of the Winter Solstice. This year’s installment of the annual cultural pageant retells the tale of Tam Lin, an enchanted knight who must be rescued from the Elfin Queen by a daring maiden. Celebrated guest artists join more than 75 local performers to punctuate the production with a variety of work songs, ballads, battle tunes and spirited dance styles. “We’re imagining the show as unfolding like a cèilidh on an island in northern Scotland,” says visiting dancer Joshua Haiman, “and having a certain northlands wildness to it.”

Price: $7.20-44.
