Kevin Puts is one of America's most exciting and important composers. His first opera, Silent Night, with a libretto by Mark Campbell, was commissioned by Minnesota Opera. It premiered in 2011 and went on to win the Pulitzer Prize. A work propound and sweeping emotional power, it has since entered the modern operatic repertoire with remarkable speed, enjoying world-wide performances. The opera is based on Christian Carion's screen-play for the 2005 French war film Joyeux Noël, and it's fictionalized subject is the series of Christmas truces on the Western Front in 1914.
