    Silent Night is the powerful, true story of the spontaneous Christmas truce between French, British and German soldiers during World War I. On Christmas Eve, 1914, the opposing forces put down their weapons, come together around a makeshift tree, share their stories and play soccer matches. The soldiers’ peaceful actions are reprimanded by their commanders, but cast a lasting light on the good of humanity in the face of war.

    Composed by Kevin Puts with libretto by Mark Campbell, Silent Night won the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2012.

    Tomer Zvulun directs and Nicole Paiement conducts. Baritone Matthew Worth, last seen in Soldier Songs, will return to Atlanta as Lieutenant Audebert. General & Artistic Director Zvulun directed the debut of this co-production (with the Wexford Festival Opera and Glimmerglass Festival) at the esteemed Wexford Festival Opera to critical acclaim, winning the Audience Choice Award and Best Opera Award at the Irish Times Theatre Awards.
