2:00 PM Stage: All is Calm -The Christmas Truce of 1914 All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 is based on the real-life events during the Great War along the Western Front when soldiers from France, England and Germany ventured into no-man's land on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to exchange food and gifts, and perform burials. Games of football were played and most encounters ended with the singing of Christmas carols. The truce was unofficial and unsanctioned and combat resumed the next day. The opera tells the story of this testament to humanity and unity through Christmas carols and narrated letters from actual soldiers from the war in an uplifting and family-friendly production. This production is new to San Diego Opera and is a co-presentation with Bodhi Tree Concerts and SACRA/PROFANA.

Admission/Admission/Cost: Adults $35 - $160, Children $13 - $75

2:00 PM Migration and Human Rights Exhibition Opening In partnership with the Comisión Nacional de los Derechos Humanos (CNDH, National Human Rights Commission Mexico), the exhibition features twelve (12) posters from a collection of eighty-four (84) digitalized artworks that were formerly displayed under the same title outdoors in Mexico City's Chapultepec Park, in 2017.

Comprised of works from renowned artists and youth from all continents, the art focuses on migration and its affects on all aspects of society. This timely exhibition explores "ways of approaching the population with the valuable support of institutions sensitive to the issue," while offering to help in understanding "the migratory phenomenon from the perspective of human rights, the impact it leaves on people and their repercussions in the place of origin, destination and return." as noted in an official statement by the CNDH.

In a year that commemorates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), UNA USA San Diego highlights a shared humanity based on the UDHR preamble acknowledging the "inherent dignity … equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family [as] the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world." San Diego Chapter's Vice President of the Board of Directors, Stefania Marchina summarizes the organization's intent with this exhibition to underline that "the core of Human Rights is to leave no one behind by securing equality, fairness and justice for all, regardless of nationality, race or migration status."

8:00 PM Music: Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn The Grammy award-winning folk duo's latest album, Echo in the Valley, showcases the beautiful ancestral African roots of the banjo, combined with Scotch-Irish music of Appalachia.

On stage, Fleck & Washburn will perform pieces from their Grammy-winning self-titled debut as well as their new record, Echo in the Valley (Rounder 2017). With one eye on using the banjo to showcase America's rich heritage and the other pulling the noble instrument from its most familiar arena into new and unique realms, Bela & Abigail meet in the mean, head-on, to present music that feels wildly innovative and familiar at the same time. Whether at home, on stage or on record, their deep bond, combined with the way their distinct musical personalities and banjo styles interact, makes theirs a picking partnership unlike any other on the planet.

Admission/Cost: $48 - $50

Location:
Belly Up Tavern
143 South Cedros Ave
Solana Beach, CA 92075
