All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 promises to move audiences with a remarkable true story. The telling of an extraordinary Christmas night during World War I.
We take you to the western front on the Christmas night of 1914, out of the silence, a song…. A soldier steps into no man’s land singing “Silent Night” That night Allied and German soldiers set down their weapons to enjoy food and drink, camaraderie, music, and peace. This wonderful piece, told in the words and songs of the men who lived it, will hold your heart and touch your soul.
The opera will be performed in English at Tucker Missionary Baptist Church on Friday, December 15.
Written by Peter Rothstein, Vocal Arrangements by Erick Lichte and Timothy C. Takach. Presented by special arrangement with Broadway Licensing, LLC.
