Opera Orlando shares a message of camaraderie, hope, and peace this holiday season as it remounts its acclaimed 2019 production of All is Calm: the Christmas Truce of 1914. Set along the Western Front during World War I, this poignant and moving work relates the historic events of Christmas Eve in 1914 through actual soldiers’ letters and official military correspondence interwoven with old war songs and carols. Celebrate the holidays with this intimate and beautiful melding of music and theater as the cast performs a capella in the acoustically ideal Steinmetz Hall.

Written by Peter Rothstein with vocal arrangements by Erick Lichte and Timothy C. Takach, artistic director Grant Preisser once again directs this band of brothers with Andrew Minear making his Company debut as music director. The troupe of singers welcomes back previous cast members, along with new faces coming together in harmony to tell this powerful story: the story of a German soldier stepping into No Man’s Land to sing “Stille Nacht (Silent Night),” which began an extraordinary and unprecedented night of music, acceptance, and peace.
