All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 Opens Dec. 15: This collaboration of Theater Latte Da and the men's vocal ensemble Cantus has rapidly earned a place in the hierarchy of local holiday classics. As the title implies, the story is a temporary and unlikely wartime armistice: A German soldier steps into No Man's Land singing "Stille Nacht," which begins an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music and peace. Creator Peter Rothstein's tale is told in the words and songs of the men who experienced it.
