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 love 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 special collaboration of several local arts organizations working together to present this 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, Juan Acosta and stage director Jacob Bruce. Performances will be held at the Veterans Museum at Balboa Park on November 17, 18 and 19, 2017. Tickets are $30/$15 Students & Military.
