100 Years to the day ….
In 1914, at the Western front, out of the violence on Christmas Eve comes a silence, then a song. A German soldier steps into No Man’s Land singing “Stille Nacht.” Thus began an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music, and peace.
Directed by our own Abbey Crawford, All is Calm – The Christmas Truce of 1914 tells this remarkable story in the words and songs of the men who lived it. A select group of theaters was granted permission to perform this moving story on its 100th anniversary. The Modern Theater was among them. Friends of the Bing is thrilled to bring the Modern’s production to the stage of the Bing Crosby Theater on the exact date of that magical night. Spend Christmas Eve with us and see this celebration of the respite from the horrors of WWI when one small group of soldiers, for one night, truly believed in Peace on Earth.
TICKETS AVAILABLE ON MONDAY!
The Spokesman Review said of The Modern Theater – Coeur d’Alene’s production, “The show’s strongest number is its rendition of “Silent Night,” in which the singers solemnly repeat the line “all is calm” in a measured and powerful manner, like a haunting drumbeat.”
