This Twelfth Night celebration, ranging from the rowdy to the reverent, is a centuries old Christmas tradition of theatre, music and dance, comprising a huge cast of revellers, that brings the medieval and the modern together in a spectacle for all ages. World-class performers from Ireland and the U.S. join forces with our own local talent to create an event that brings the Christmas season to a resounding and heart-warming grand finale. The show features the 78th Highlanders (Halifax Citadel) Pipe Band, Diaga Irish Dance Company (led by Riverdance alumnus, Zeph Caissie), Capella Regalis Men & Boys Choir, the Cathedral Church of All Saints Choir, the legendary Paddy Keenan (The Bothy Band) on Uilleann pipes and Kevin Crawford (Lúnasa) on flute and whistles, incorporating old traditions with our own Nova Scotian rituals rooted in the Celtic tradition.
20% of the ticket proceeds will be donated to Phoenix Youth, a non-profit, community based organization dedicated to supporting youths between the ages of 11-24, families, and communities across the Halifax Regional Municipality. www.phoenixyouth.ca
