You Will Never Believe That This Acclaimed Opera Is Based on a True Story
He is a convicted killer. She has devoted her life to God. What could they possibly have to say to one another? So begins the story of Dead Man Walking. Witness this provocative story when it’s performed live at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, February 2nd.
A true story that spawned a best-selling book and an Academy Award-winning movie, Jake Heggie’s Dead Man Walking tells of Sister Helen Prejean and her time as spiritual advisor to Joseph de Rocher, a murderer on death row.
The most performed new American opera of the 21st Century, Dead Man Walking “makes the most concentrated impact of any piece of American music theater since West Side Story” (The Guardian).
