    Silent Night

    The West Coast premiere of this opera by composer Kevin Puts’ and librettist Mark Campbell recounts the miraculous day of peace during WWI when Scottish, French and German soldiers defy their superiors and negotiate a Christmas Eve truce among themselves. The soldiers, bloodied from battle and mourning their dead, soon become brothers as a carol begins, floating softly over no man’s land to celebrate Christmas. Puts and Campbell, both of whom won a Pulitzer Prize for the moving drama, join Opera San José on opening night (Feb 11) to speak about their latest contribution to modern opera. The production is entirely new with sets, props, costumes and projections specially created by the company. The libretto, sung in English, French, German, Italian and Latin, is translated into English supertitles.
