About the Show
MN Opera’s international sensation makes its homecoming, honoring the centennial of World War I’s conclusion. Recounting a miraculous moment of peace during one of the bloodiest wars in human history, Scottish, French, and German officers defy their superiors and negotiate a Christmas Eve truce. The Pulitzer Prize-winning music underscores the yearning, despair, and hope of the soldiers living in the trenches. Silent Night masterfully juxtaposes the bombastic sounds of war with serene songs from home, and stands as a heartfelt hymn to our common humanity.

- On Christmas Eve, the soldiers on both sides agree to a momentary truce, against the orders of their superiors. They are punished afterwards. When are times when others don't want you to do the right thing? When might someone be criticized or punished for choosing something good?
