All is Calm is based on real-life events during World War I along the Western Front when soldiers from France, England, and Germany ventured into no-man’s land on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Soldiers exchanged gifts, swapped prisoners, performed burials, played football, and sang Christmas carols. The unofficial truce was all-too-brief: following that period of peace, soldiers were ordered back to fight for another bloody four years.
A beautifully profound a cappella chamber opera, All is Calm is a testament to humanity and unity. It features text found in letters from soldiers who lived through WWI alongside familiar holiday and military music from the countries engaged in battle.
Seating is limited to allow for social distancing.
