The Guardian of London declares, “Dead Man Walking makes the most concentrated impact of any piece of American music theater since West Side Story.”
With music by Jake Heggie and a libretto by Terrence McNally based on the book of the same name by Sister Helen Prejean, the opera tells the story of a nun’s journey as spiritual adviser to Joseph De Rocher, a convicted murderer on death row at Louisiana’s Angola State Prison.
From its wrenching beginning to its emotionally charged conclusion, this powerful tale of suffering and redemption leaves a lasting impression on all who encounter it. Parental advisory: This performance contains adult situations, graphic violence, and explicit language.
