Be transported to a time when generosity of spirit ruled the day in this perfect holiday treat for the entire family. The first opera ever written for television in 1951, this classic tale of a precocious crippled shepherd boy who happens to be visited by the Three Kings on their mission to behold the Christ-child fares even better on the stage. The music is for everyone. 

Sung in English.

Opera Orlando presents the Florida premiere of this poignant and moving work set during World War I at the Western Front, Christmas 1914. Out of the violence there was a silence, then a song. A German soldier stepped into No Man’s Land singing “Stille Nacht (Silent Night)”. Thus began an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music, and peace. Celebrate the holiday season by reliving this remarkable true story, told in the words and songs of the men who lived it.

Written by Peter Rothstein with Vocal Arrangements by Erick Lichte and Timothy C. Takach, All is Calm is critically acclaimed by the New York Times and Star Tribune. This will be an intimate event of music and theater as the cast performs a capella and in-the-round.

Marie is the daughter of the regiment. Orphaned as an infant, she was adopted and raised by a French army regiment not knowing about her noble past. The military life suits her until she falls for the handsome peasant Tonio. Love-struck for Marie he must join the regiment to be near her, and gain approval from her army of “fathers”. To further complicate matters Marie is whisked away from the regiment by the Marquise of Birkenfeld who knows of her aristocratic lineage and wants to introduce her properly to society. This, of course, upends the regimental order of things, and Marie must then choose between marrying for love or for social status. It’s a show of equal parts comedy, romance, and vocal fireworks.

Orlando native and Metropolitan Opera National Competition winner Carlos Santelli takes on the role of Tonio and the famous aria “Ah Mes Amis” with no less than 9 high C’s, soprano Camille Ortiz takes on the title role of Marie, the beloved daughter of the regiment, and bass-baritone Peter Strummer returns to Orlando in the buffo role of General Sulpice. The production features musicians from the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra and members of the Opera Orlando Chorus.

Sung in French with English dialogue and supertitles.
