Why See All Is Calm?
The Remarkable Story Of The Christmas Ceasefire
The remarkable true story of the 1914 Christmas Truce comes to San Diego this Holiday season, and with it a poignant reminder of the humanity behind the statistics of war and oft forgotten annals of history. A special collaboration between the San Diego Opera, non-profit arts organisation Bhodi Tree Concerts and California-based chamber choir SACRA/PROFANA, the emotionally-charged production has received much critical acclaim for its compassionate and uplifting message of peace.
Performed by 12 actors and singers, the life-affirming a capella piece is told through real poetry, diary entries, letters and war documents, chronicling the special moment when a German soldier stepped out from the trenches into No Man's Land on Christmas Day, 1914, setting off a series of unofficial ceasefires along the Western Front. Soldiers from both sides laid down their arms for a single day, coming together to sing carols and trench songs, exchange gifts and bury their dead.
