Stille Nacht am Silbersee met Arthur Japin

a literary Midnight Mass about hope, comfort and doubt
in collaboration with writer Arthur Japin

The end of the year is a time of reflection. On Christmas Eve, some go to Midnight Mass, with its songs and stories about the birth of hope in dark times. Stille Nacht am Silbersee is a literary and musical version, a contemporary meditation on hope, comfort and doubt.

In collaboration with writer Arthur Japin, Silbersee presents a 'winter night' for concert and theatre venues, with stories and reflections, words and music. At its musical heart is*the little match girl passion*by David Lang. This touching winter passion, an adaptation of the fairy tale of the little match girl, won a Pulitzer Prize in 2008.
