KPBS presents a live broadcast from the San Diego Opera!

Based on real-life events during World War I along the Western Front when soldiers from France, England, and Germany ventured into no-man’s land on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

A beautifully-profound A Capella chamber opera, "All is Calm" is a testament to humanity and unity, and features text from letters from soldiers who lived through war alongside familiar holiday and military music from the countries engaged in battle in World War I.

If you would like to see the show live in person on December 7, 8 or 9, tickets are available.
