Not only is Silent Night the winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for music, but the show is also directed by Oscar-winning director Eric Simonson.
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.
