ArtsCenter Stage’s Provocative Production of “All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914” Stirs the Soul

The Southeast premiere of “All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914,” concluding its all-too-short two-week run this weekend at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro, NC, stirs the soul. This ArtsCenter Stage presentation of the hour-long 2007 radio musical drama written by Peter Rothstein, with musical arrangements by Erick Lichte and Timothy C. Takach, is a true symphonic drama in which 11 members from the Cantari Men’s Ensemble sings songs of the times — traditional ballads, patriotic ditties, marching songs, and Christmas hymns and carols — all a cappella, wearing the World War I uniforms of both sides as they also recite pertinent bits of poetry, excerpts from the letters and dispatches, even inscriptions from grave markers.

ArtsCenter Stage will stage Peter Rothstein's radio drama, "All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914," on Dec. 7-9 and 13-16 in the Earl and Rhoda Wynn Theater at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro
