Special encore performance of 'All is Calm' at the Bing

This will mark the 100th anniversary, of this historic display of peace during WWI. 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. 'All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914' tells this remarkable story in the words and songs of the men who lived it. Spend Christmas Eve at the Bing and see this celebration of the mysterious respite from the horrors of WWI when one small group of soldiers, for one night, truly believed in Peace on Earth.

Doors open at 6:00 pm. Tickets are $15-25. Ticketswest has your seats.
