About

Kevin Puts is one of Americaís most exciting and important composers. His first opera, Silent Night, with a libretto by Mark Campbell, was commissioned by Minnesota Opera. It premiered in 2011 and went on to win the Pulitzer Prize. A work of profound and sweeping emotional power, it has since entered the modern operatic repertoire with remarkable speed, enjoying worldwide performances. The opera is based on Christian Carionís screenplay for the 2005 French war film Joyeux NoŽl, and its fictionalised subject is the series of Christmas truces on the Western Front in 1914.

Kevin Putsís works have been commissioned, performed, and recorded by leading ensembles and soloists throughout the world, including Joshua Bell, Yo-Yo Ma, Dame Evelyn Glennie, the Metropolitan Opera, and the New York Philharmonic, among others.
