I’d take my 11-year-old son to “All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914,” because I think our species needs to rethink war, and his generation might be the one that starts to alter the cycle.
All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914
Dec. 16-19: This moving collaboration between Theatre Latte Da and the male vocal group Cantus could become an enduring local tradition akin to the Guthrie’s “Christmas Carol.” The true story of enemy soldiers setting down their guns and singing carols together also has inspired a new opera the Minnesota Opera will present next year. 7:30 p.m. Dec. 16-17, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Dec. 18, 1 and 6:30 p.m. Dec. 19; Pantages Theatre, 710 Hennepin Ave., Mpls.; $35-$27.50; 800-982-2787 or hennepintheatretrust.org.
