UK Opera Theatre presents "Silent Night"
University of Kentucky Opera Theatre presents "Silent Night" in the SCFA Concert Hall.
The University of Kentucky Opera Theatre presents the international sensation honoring the centennial of World War I’s conclusion. Silent Night recounts a miraculous moment of peace during one of the bloodiest wars in human history. The year is 1914 and the Great War has just been declared, dividing nations and sending millions into battle. As Christmas Eve falls on a battle field near Belgium, soldiers in French, German, and Scottish trenches begin recalling songs of home, stepping into no-man’s-land for a spontaneous truce. The Pulitzer-Prize winning music underscores the yearning, despair, and hope of the soldiers living in the trenches. Once sworn enemies, they trade their weapons for merriment and camaraderie—resulting in one miraculous night of peace.
UK Opera Theatre’s production is directed by Richard Gammon. Performances will be November 9, 10, and 11, 2018, celebrating Veteran’s Day and the 100th Anniversary of the truce ending World War I, making the event especially poignant.
