Step back nearly 100 years to when German and British soldiers celebrated Christmas in the midst of the violence of World War I. The year is 1914. A German soldier crosses into no man's land and begins to sing “Stille Nacht.” A night of gift giving, singing and peace is shared. History is brought to life in the theatrical production All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914, featuring the nine voices of renowned vocal ensemble Cantus in collaboration with Theatre Latté Da. New arrangements of European carols and war songs complemented by the narration of entries from soldiers' diaries complete this Christmas event. 9939 Old Davis Road in Davis, www.cantussings.org.
