Silent Night, is making its East Coast debut on Friday, February 8 with the Opera Company of Philadelphia. You don’t want to miss this premiere, the impressive opera won the coveted 2012 Pulitzer Prize in music.
The opera tells the story of a heartwarming event that occurred in Belgium on Christmas Eve, 1914. During World War 1, Scottish, French and German troops came together and agreed to cease-fire and to a Christmas Eve truce. How’s that for Christmas spirit?
The performance is impressive all around. In addition to being a Pulitzer Prize winner, the show will be directed by Eric Simonson, an Oscar-winning director.
Head out to the Academy of Music to check out the East Coast premiere of this award-winning opera. The opera runs from February 8-17, but there are only five performances in the City of Brotherly Love, so catch it before its too late.
Tickets are available for as little as $10 a piece and are available online.
