December 21, 2008.By Rob Hubbard, Pioneer Press.

Through today: The Minnesota-based male choir Cantus has been something of a word-of-mouth phenomenon as its fame has grown over the years. But the new CD “All Is Calm” could be what really launches the group to international acclaim. It has already garnered a glowing review from Classics Today. But that’s an audio version of what has been hailed as a deeply moving theatrical experience. Peter Rothstein’s musical tells the story of the Christmas truce of 1914, when German and Allied soldiers met on a European battlefield … and shared songs and stories. 1 and 6:30 p.m.; Pantages Theatre, 710 Hennepin Ave., Mpls.; $35-$25; 651-989-5151.
