All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914
Featuring the Cantus Vocal Ensemble and Theater Latté Da

Update as of 11/8/2013: This event is SOLD OUT.

Cincinnati Opera and Christ Church Cathedral are proud to present “All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914,” featuring the Cantus Vocal Ensemble and Theater Latté Da on Veterans Day, Monday, November 11, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. The performance, which will be held on the 95th anniversary of the armistice ending hostilities in the First World War, is offered free of charge to U.S. veterans and active military servicemen and women. The performance is sponsored by Christ Church Cathedral.

“All Is Calm” tells the story of the remarkable World War I truce between Allied forces and German soldiers at the Western Front on Christmas 1914—the same story that inspired the opera Silent Night, which Cincinnati Opera will present in July 2014. “All Is Calm” combines documentary sources—letters from soldiers at the front as well as contemporary news articles—with new arrangements of European carols and war songs to create a moving a cappella concert. “All Is Calm” was written by Peter Rothstein, with musical arrangements by Erick Lichte and Timothy C. Takach.

“All Is Calm” is the first event in Cincinnati Remembers World War I, a community series commemorating the 100th anniversary of World War I and anticipating Cincinnati Opera’s production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning new opera Silent Night. For more information, visit www.cincinnatiopera.org/WWI.
