Opera: Kevin Puts / Silent Night

As we settle into the holiday season, I thought it would be nice to immerse myself into the Kevin Puts / Mark Campbell opera Silent Night. The opera is based on Christian Carion’s screenplay for the 2005 French war film Joyeux Noël, and concerns an actual incident that occurred in the first year of World War I where soldiers of the opposing sides of the conflict declared a temporary truce in order to celebrate Christmas together.
