All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914

For the arts patron in search of a new holiday production: Consider the world premiere of All is Calm. Peripatetic director Peter Rothstein and his resident company, Theater Latté Da, have teamed up with the acclaimed men’s vocal group Cantus to stage this radio drama (which will be broadcast on Minnesota Public Radio). All is Calm tells the true story of a truce instigated by World War I soldiers on Christmas in 1914. Several years in the making, it consists almost entirely of found text from the veterans’ journals, letters, and official war documents, and incorporates an eclectic range of music, from World War I-era songs to traditional Christmas carols.
