The Silent Night musical in Salzburg

Amazing events and exhibitions all about the eternal song await you throughout the entire province of Salzburg, in Tyrol und Upper Austria, just in time for the anniversary year 200 years "Silent Night! Holy Night!". Trips to Advent markets and visits to historic re-creations aside, there’s also what at first seems to be an unusual happening on this impressive list: a special Silent Night musical in Salzburg.


“Meine Stille Nacht” at the Felsenreitschule

Film score composer John Debney (Bruce Almighty, Sin City, The Passion of the Christ) was commissioned to write a musical play about this most Christmassy melody that touches our hearts. He visited Salzburg in spring 2017, wThe as inspired by the “Silent Night” myth and projected it against a modern backdrop. A stage play was created in cooperation with author Hannah Friedman and producer Richard Kraft that lets worlds collide: quiet charity versus overly commercialised Christmas festivities, stiff traditions versus modern models of life and family.
