The Great War rages. It is 1914 and Europe has descended into darkness. On Christmas Eve, British, French, and German soldiers agree to a truce across the trenches. On that silent night, 100,000 soldiers briefly put aside their weapons and met one another face-to-face in no-man’s-land. Based on inspiring true events, this Pulitzer Prize-winning opera explores the human cost of war, and the ultimate price of peace. Sung in five languages with a sumptuous score, this global story is a modern masterpiece not to be missed.
