“Silent Night” performed by Piedmont Opera

New York-based composer and Peabody Institute faculty member Kevin Puts won the Pulitzer Prize for “Silent Night,” his first opera. Pulitzer officials described “Silent Night” as "a stirring opera that recounts the true story of a spontaneous cease-fire among Scottish, French and Germans during World War I, displaying versatility of style and cutting straight to the heart." For 2017, to mark the 100th anniversary of the US entrance into World War I, Piedmont Opera in Winston-Salem will produce the show’s North Carolina premiere. This is only the 13th time that the show has been produced and Piedmont Opera is the smallest company to produce it.

The libretto for “Silent Night” is based on the multilingual screenplay by Christian Carion for the 2005 film “Joyeux Noël,” which tells a story during the spontaneous 1914 Christmas truce between enemy combatants in World War I. The opera is performed in four languages- German, English, French and Latin- with English supertitles.

Tickets are $20-$98
