Season of Light

An updated “fulldome” version of a holiday classic, this show traces the history and development of many of the world's most endearing holiday customs, all of which involve lighting up the winter season — from the burning Yule log to the lighting of luminarias in the American Southwest. Audiences will learn a selection of Northern hemisphere winter constellations, and find out why we have the seasons. Season of Light is visually rich, culturally inclusive, musically satisfying, and soothing as a warm drink on a cold winter's night!
