The Christmas Truce of 1914
Thurs | Dec 10, 2009 | 7:30pm
Cantus returns to the Newman Center with a program inspired by actual historical events during the First World War on Christmas, 1914. Out of the violence came a silence, then a song. A young German soldier stepped into No Man’s Land singing Stille Nacht (Silent Night). Thus began an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music, and brief peace. Experience this remarkable true story through the words and songs of the men who lived it. This collaboration between Cantus and Theater Latté Da is done in the style of a radio musical drama.
