Synopsis

The Western Front, Christmas, 1914. Out of the violence a silence, then a song. A German soldier steps into No Man’s Land singing “Stille Nacht.” Thus begins an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music, peace. A remarkable true story, told in the words and songs of the men who lived it.

“Hands down, the most emotionally moving Christmas show I’ve ever seen.” – Theatremania

“A beautify musical recounting of a World War I cease-fire of gifts, poetry, and melody.” – The New York Times
