December 17, 2010.By KARE11.

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn -- The simple joys of Christmas have been captured in a variety of ways over the years, but recently, none has stood out more memorably in the Twin Cities than, All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914.

Created and directed by Peter Rothstein, All Is Calm, is the story of Allied and German soldiers who audaciously declare peace at Christmas time in 1914.

Presented as a musical, the production is filled with touching and memorable quotes and writings from the soldiers. All of this comes to life with the help of the talented all male chorus, Cantus.

The production is a collaboration between Cantus, Theater Latte Da and Hennepin Theatre Trust. Now in it's third year, the musical is being performed at Minneapolis historic Pantages Theatre.

All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 is being performed at the Pantages through Sunday, December 19, 2010. For tickets and additional information  www.ticketmaster.com or State Theatre box office.
