“Silent Night,” the opera by Kevin Puts that won the Pulitzer Prize for music in 2012, will have its television premiere on Dec. 13, when PBS broadcasts a performance by the Minnesota Opera, recorded during the work’s world-premiere run in 2011.

Mr. Puts based his opera on Christian Carion’s screenplay for the 2005 film “Joyeux Nöel,” which is based on an incident during World War I in which Scottish, French and German soldiers negotiate a Christmas truce and share their provisions and personal stories. The opera’s libretto, by Mark Campbell, is in English, German, French, Italian and Latin.

The Minnesota Opera commissioned the work with the Opera Company of Philadelphia, which performed it in 2013.
