SOLD OUT! All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914
November 11, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm |
PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.
On Veterans Day 2013, the 95th anniversary of the end of the First World War, Cincinnati Opera and Christ Church Cathedral present the Cantus Vocal Ensemble and Theater Latté Da in the inspiring musical event, All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914.
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 new 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 capella concert.
Acclaimed as “the premier men’s vocal ensemble in the United States” (Fanfare), Cantus is committed to inspiring audiences with music performed at the highest level. Rehearsing and performing without a conductor or music director, the nine members of Cantus are renowned for adventurous programming spanning many periods and genres, including work commissioned specifically for the group.
This program is presented as part of “Cincinnati Remembers WWI,” a citywide series of events commemorating the centenary of the First World War and anticipating Cincinnati Opera’s production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning opera Silent Night
in July 2014. For more information, please visit www.cincinnatiopera.org/WWI
