“My Silent Night” – The Musical
The world’s most famous Christmas song celebrates its 200-year anniversary in 2018. In honor of the occasion, the Salzburger Landestheater interprets the message of this Christmas classic in a stage production entitled “My Silent Night”.
On 24 November 2018, the musical “My Silent Night” will receive its premiere against the breathtaking backdrop of the Felsenreitschule in Salzburg. The script was developed by young author, director and musician Hannah Friedman, especially for the Salzburger Landestheater. The music was written by Oscar-nominated film composer John Debney. Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg, an ensemble of soloists as well as the chorus and corps de ballet of the Salzburger Landestheater will also participate in the production.
The story centers around eight different protagonists, all of whom anticipate the Christmas season in completely different ways. The closer they get to the “big day”, the more their destinies become intertwined. Prejudices are overcome and new friendships forged. And so it is that the musical concludes, not with “my”, but rather “our” Silent Night.
