LAMF On the Road: Minnesota Opera – Kevin Puts' Silent Night
The Lakes Area Music Festival has brought world-class music to your doorstep since 2009.
But now, LAMF also brings you to some of the best classical music venues and ensembles in the state of Minnesota. Hit the road with your festival BFFs and your musical tour guide, Artistic Director Scott Lykins, for a day trip you’ll want to write home about!
MN Opera’s international sensation makes its homecoming, honoring the centennial of World War I’s conclusion. Recounting a miraculous moment of peace during one of the bloodiest wars in human history, Scottish, French, and German officers defy their superiors and negotiate a Christmas Eve truce. The Pulitzer-Prize opera Silent Night masterfully juxtaposes the bombastic sounds of war with serene songs from home, and stands as a heartfelt hymn to our common humanity.
