Thousands of men put down their guns and left the trenches to meet their enemies in ‘No Man’s Land’. They exchanged gifts of tobacco, rum and chocolates, even photographs of loved ones. They sang songs, played a game of soccer, and buried each others' dead. Upon orders from above, they eventually returned to their trenches and re-instigated a war that would last
four more years.
ALL IS CALM is a compassionate tale of the true impact of war. Composed for acapella male voices, All Is Calm will feature the finest local cast under the direction of acclaimed Music Director and Conductor, Juan Acosta and stage director Jacob Bruce.
