Theater Latte Da's ALL IS CALM to Open 12/19 at the Pantages Theatre

All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 opens next week, playing December 19-22, 2013 at the Pantages Theatre, 710 Hennepin Avenue, Minneapolis, MN.

All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 by Peter Rothstein features music arrangements by Erick Lichte and Timothy C. Takach and will be directed by Peter Rothstein.

A co-production of Cantus, Theater Latté Da and Hennepin Theatre Trust.

The Western Front, Christmas, 1914. Out of the violence comes a silence, then a song. A German soldier steps into No Man's Land singing "Stille Nacht." Thus begins an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music, peace. A remarkable true story, told in the words of the men who lived it.

All Is Calm relives the story of an astounding moment in history when Allied and German soldiers laid down their arms to celebrate the holiday together by trading carols, sharing food and drink, playing soccer and burying each others' dead. In some places the truce lasted only a night, in others until New Year's Day. This dramatic re-telling contains actual quotes and letters from thirty World War I figures brought to life by actors Matt Rein, David Roberts and Alan Sorenson.

Cantus beautifully weaves a tapestry of sound, drawing from patriotic tunes, trench songs, medieVal Scottish ballads and holiday carols from England, Wales, France and Germany which take on new depths when set in the context of trench warfare. Music, an important part of life in the trenches, helped create a context that inspired the truce.
