Silent Night, created by composer Kevin Puts and Librettist Mark Campbell, is based on the screenplay by Christian Carion for the motion picture Joyeux Noël produced by Nord-Ouest Production, and Commissioned by Minnesota Opera - A Minnesota Opera New Works Initiative Production.

Piedmont Opera is producing Silent Night to honor the 100th anniversary of America's entrance into the Great War.  This will be the first time the opera has been produced in North Carolina.  Commissioned by the Minnesota Opera with co-producer Opera Company of Philadelphia, Silent Night opened on November 12, 2011 at the Ordway Theater, St. Paul, Minnesota to great critical acclaim and standing-room-only houses for the entirety of its run.  The opera is sung in English, German, French, Italian, and Latin.
