Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts says
A modern classic since its premiere in 2000, Dead Man Walking is the story of a nun’s journey as the spiritual advisor of a convicted murderer on death row. From the shocking opening scene to the searing finale, this opera changes everyone who encounters it. Dead Man Walking, composed by Jake Heggie with libretto by Terrence McNally, is based on Sister Helen Prejean’s 1993 account of her work on death row at the Louisiana State Penitentiary. The popularity of the opera can be credited not only to the timeless relevance of its subject and the humanity of its story, but also to how successfully the composer and librettist have captured the essence and impact of the story in an intense musical and dramatic setting.
