OPERA PHILADELPHIA invites you to see the movie that inspired SILENT NIGHT
The opera Silent Night is based on the 2005 Academy Award-nominated French film Joyeux Noël. The film, which stars Diane Kruger and Benno Fürmann, dramatizes the historic Christmas Truce of 1914. In the midst of WWI, German, French, and Scottish soldiers laid down their arms, against the wishes of their superiors, and came together to celebrate the holiday. The film features the voices of soprano Natalie Dessay and tenor Rolando Villazón. Soprano Kelly Ann Bixby will perform a selection from the opera prior to the screening at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute. Attend the screening and enter to win a pair of tickets to see Silent Night.
