Join us for a fun-filled, educational Q and A panel with the cast and crew of this year's Christmas Revels!

This year California Revels is presenting La Sirène, visiting folklore and traditions from 19th Century London, as well as the Gullah and Caribbean Islands. Together we embark on an odyssey across the Atlantic. From sea chanties, mermaids, and Christmas carols to Jonkonnu and Papa Bois, we'll celebrate the Winter Solstice through the eyes of La Sirène and Joseph Johnson, a sailor who lived his life in all these traditions.

La Sirène will be streaming on-demand starting December 21st—the Winter Solstice.

Come meet people close to the show and prepare for the adventure that awaits you!
