Witness rare and poignant moments of humanity during the world’s most brutal war in this stunning musical depiction of the legendary Christmas truce of 1914.
2018 Glimmerglass Festival Preview with director Tomer Zvulun featuring Erhard Rom’s production
It’s December 24, 1914 on the Western Front, and the sounds of battle between the French, Scottish, and German armies are replaced by those of Christmas carols. A short truce is called, but it isn’t long before the soldiers are confronted with the realities of war and what they mean for the coming days.
