“When people hear ‘classical’ they think ‘dead.’ The music is described in terms of its distance from the present, its resistance to the masses—what it is not. You see magazines with listings for Popular Music in one section and Classical Music in another, so that the latter becomes, by implication, Unpopular Music.”
-Alex Ross, The Rest Is Noise
The Western Front, Christmas, 1914. Out of the violence a silence, then a song. A German soldier steps into No Man’s Land singing “Stille Nacht.” Thus begins an extraordinary night of camaraderie, music, peace. A remarkable true story, told in the words and songs of the men who lived it.

Washington, D.C., 1950s. As the “Lavender Scare” envelops the U.S. government, Timothy Laughlin, a recent college graduate and ardent supporter of Joseph McCarthy, meets Hawkins Fuller, a State Department official. The two men embark on a relationship, tangled in a web of fear and necessary deceit. Their friends and colleagues fill out a story of individuals grappling with their beliefs and emotions, against a deeply political background.
Based on Thomas Mallon’s novel, this acclaimed 2016 opera was praised as “a near-perfect example of fast-flowing musical drama” by the New York Times and tells of the very human consequences of prejudice and fear, with compassion, nuance, and incredible beauty.
