It’s undeniable that the holiday season has a certain magic beyond the lights, the carols, and the stark beauty of fresh snow: it brings people together, reminding us of what’s important and encouraging us to set aside our differences. In this poignant performance, the acclaimed Theater Latté Da will masterfully retell a poignant moment of unity and reconciliation: the Christmas truce when Allied and German soldiers celebrated together, sharing food and drink, playing soccer, singing carols and burying each other's dead.
Theater Latté Da presents 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 for a capella voices, All Is Calm recalls the remarkable World War I truce between Allied Forces and German soldiers in no man's land on Christmas, 1914.
Founded in 1998 by Peter Rothstein and Denise Prosek, Theater Latté Da is in its 20th year of combining music and story to illuminate the depth and breadth of the human experience. The company is becoming a national leader in the art of musical theater, having produced 66 mainstage productions—including 10 world premieres, 10 area premieres, and dozens of productions celebrated for their bold re-imagination.
