A fascinating true story, Silent Night recounts a miraculous moment of peace during one of the bloodiest wars in human history. On World War I’s western front, weapons are laid down when the Scottish, French and German officers defy their superiors and negotiate a Christmas Eve truce. Enemies become brothers as they come together to share Christmas and bury their dead. Acclaimed tenor William Burden stars as the soldier whose voice inspired peace among adversaries – if only for a day.

“Minnesota Opera presented one of the most compelling, memorable and poignant new works I’ve seen in recent years.” WQXR Radio (New York)
“… a tremendously rewarding work, given an excellent production that should go down as a landmark in the Minnesota Opera’s almost half-century history.” Pioneer Press
“Grimly beautiful, the piece is a significant addition to the repertoire and heralds the emergence of composer Kevin Puts as a force in American Opera.” Star Tribune

“Silent Night stands as a heartfelt hymn to our common humanity.”
