The Modern Theater, 1320 E. Garden Coeur D’Alene, ID 83814

In 1914, at the Western front, out of the violence comes 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, and peace. A remarkable true experience, told in the words and songs of the men who lived it. We are thrilled to be one of a select group of theatres granted permission to perform this moving story on its 100th year anniversary.
