Events featuring Silent Night

The global message of peace found in the carol “Silent Night, Holy Night” has set the agenda for the 200-year anniversary celebrations. Numerous activities and events in villages and localities throughout the regions of the three Silent Night provinces in Austria – SalzburgerLand, Tirol and Upper Austria – are being organised to mark the occasion.

Locations that are closely connected to the origins of the world-renowned Christmas carol proudly still keep its memory and history alive till today. The magic of the famous song is made tangible in a sentimental journey offering festive highlights and special features.

A wonderful programme spotlighting Silent Night has been put together featuring concerts, Christmas markets and nativity crib exhibitions, plus modern events like the new theatre piece “Meine Stille Nacht” (My Silent Night) to be performed at the Felsenreitschule, or the Salzburg Advent Festival taking place in the Grosse Festspielhaus in Salzburg, as well as a national exhibition involving different provinces.

On 24 November 2018, the new musical play titled “My Silent Night”, will debut in the Felsenreitschule in Salzburg. A touch of Broadway is being brought to Austria by the American production team invited to take part. Andreas Gergen, who already successfully directed “The Sound of Music” and “Monty Python’s Spamalot,” is director. Hannah Friedman wrote the script.

“I don’t want to preach to Austrians about their traditions – well, I couldn’t, even if I wanted to. But there are some universal topics, which are valid all over the world. Like striking a balance between tradition and innovation. Or the power of having visions.”

Hannah Friedman, scriptwriter of “My Silent Night.”
