The Christmas Revels: A Welsh Celebration
Identity for a Stage Production
The major emphasis of this year’s graphics: a giant red dragon—Y Ddraig Goch—symbolizing all things Welsh. The second act of the Revels production featured a consummate showdown between two unleashed dragons, one white and one red. The victorious red dragon, who in legend represents the kingdom of Vortigern, depicts the ascendancy of Wales over its Saxon rivals.
We loved the bold, audacious, dimensional quality of his creature and the way its scale seems uncontainable.
For the past three years, our Christmas Revels central image has featured a moment of magical transcendence focusing on a central character or characters against a backdrop of larger action. Welcoming and friendly, a looming red dragon became THE central feature this year.
