THE CHRISTMAS REVELS 2020 Cellist Yo-Yo Ma is the special guest for this year’s “Revels,” written and directed by Patrick Swanson, with musical direction by George Emlen. It will be the first time in 50 years that the show will not be performed live in Sanders Theatre. In response, Swanson has devised a story in which the marble statues of James Otis (played by Paula Plum) and Josiah Quincy (Richard Snee, Plum’s husband) that stand on either side of the Sanders stage come to life and recount their memories of the songs, dances, and rituals they have heard and witnessed over the years. This year’s Revels will also feature performances drawn from the “Revels” archives. Christmas Revels Event Pass $50 for unlimited VOD access from date of purchase to the end of the run. On sale Nov. 15 at www.revels.org/christmas. VOD available Dec. 18-31, also at www.revels.org/christmas
