All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914

Watch a true story of how soldiers found a moment of joy in a time of sorrow. All is Calm is a tale of how sworn enemies defied orders and how battle lines became a place of celebration and solidarity for one brief Christmas night.

Why Watch All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914

All is Calm is a remarkable true story told in the words and songs of the men who lived through the harrowing First World War. The tale is brought to life by the cast of ten talented performers, heartrending tunes of patriotism, ballads and Christmas carols from Wales, Germany, Belgium, England, and France. There is also the inclusion of texts interlaced together from excerpts of letters, gravestone inscriptions, an old radio broadcast, poetry, and autobiographies.
This is a story of how a fabled myth of the First World War is finally given a legitimate voice by none other than the masterful Peter Rothstein, as he manages to encapsulate what it would have been like at that very moment in time.

The Story

It is the Christmas of 1914, a dark time on the frontlines of the First World War where German and British soldiers are at war with each other. There is silence for a moment before a German soldier steps into No Man’s land and begins his rendition of "Stille Nacht". This marks the start of a night of laughter and happiness, forgetting for a brief moment the perils of war.

Watch this story that brings out the essence of Christmas, which will evoke a sense of humanity in you as this beautiful tale is brought to life on the stage by a troupe of supremely talented actors and singers.

Critics Reviews

“A heartbreaking tribute to the men, who, in defiance of their commanders had the courage to affirm their common humanity.”
– The New Yorker
