Details

The Western
Front, Christmas Eve, 1914. Out of the violence of the Great War’s trenches comes a silence, then a song as a young German soldier steps into no man’s land
singing “Stille Nacht.” Thus begins an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music, and peace. A remarkable true story, told in the words of the men who
lived it. Cantus and Theater Latté Da present ALL IS CALM: THE CHRISTMAS TRUCE OF 1914 by Peter Rothstein, with musical arrangements by Erick Lichte and Timothy C. Takach. Through new arrangements of European carols and war-songs, like “O Come, O Come Emmanuel,” “Good King Wenceslas,” and “Auld Lang Syne,” all sung by stunning a cappella voices, ALL IS CALM recalls the remarkable World War I truce between Allied Forces and German soldiers on
Christmas, 1914.  http://www.cowancenter.org/ &  www.alliscalm.org
