Untold stories of “Silent Night! Holy Night!”, the carol that touched the world’s heart, unfold in this seasonal theater play that was written by Hakon Hirzenberger.
If organ builder Karl Mauracher from Fügen and poet and priest Joseph Mohr had been corresponding with each other—what could we read in their letters? This is the plot of the “Mauracher and Mohr” Music Theater, which will be staged at the Festivity Hall in Fügen. One thing is for sure: These two men gave birth to what today is considered the world’s most famous Christmas carol. Joseph Mohr created the text to “Silent Night! Holy Night!” in the form of a poem in 1816. Organ builder Karl Mauracher brought the song from Oberndorf near Salzburg to Fügen in Tirol’s Zillertal Valley, from where it has set out on its triumphant journey around the world. The play was written by Hakon Hirzenberger.
