Concert in Celebration of the Winter Solstice-2008
The show features some of the Triad's most splendidly eclectic musical talent accompanied by varied types of international dance performance as well as projected images with spoken word. An alternative to the standard holiday offerings, "Awake the White and Wint'ry Queen" invites you to embark on a musical journey to capture a story of the turning of the seasons. As the impending frost signals an end to the reign of the Autumn Queen, song and dance weave a tale that leads to the awakening of the Wint'ry Queen who must rule the time when the snow flies. Her slumber is at last at an end. On the longest, darknest night of the year she comes to reclaim her crown at the time of the return to the light. The dying Autumn Queen bestows the crown upon her in a final scene of coronation so that the seasonal wheel may turn again.
