In commemoration of the hundredth anniversary of the armistice of World War I, this special program, designed and narrated by musicologist and historian Patrick Warfield, explores the subject matter of the Pulitzer Prize-winning opera, Silent Night. Depicting the famous Christmas Eve truce on the battlefields of 1914 Europe, Kevin Puts’s and Mark Campbell’s Silent Night has stunned and moved audiences around the globe, and WNO’s production of the opera will play in the Eisenhower Theater from November 10-25. Through extracts from the opera, popular songs of the era, works by composers who gave their lives during the war, and other contemporary artistic reactions to the conflagration, members of WNO’s Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program will take you on a moving musical journey into this unprecedented period of global upheaval. With gratitude for their sacrifice and service, Washington National Opera presents each production of Silent Night in honor of all Veterans and members of the U.S Armed Forces.
