    Silent Night, based on the screenplay by Christian Carion for the motion picture Joyeux Noël, produced by Nord-Ouest Production

    The 2012 Pulitzer Prize award-winning opera Silent Night, composed in 2011, recounts the remarkable true story of the 1914 Christmas Truce: a spontaneous cease-fire experienced by Scottish, French, and German soldiers during World War I. We are honoured to have members of the Canadian Armed Forces with us in the production.
