A powerful tale of grief, mercy, and redemption, Dead Man Walking is hailed as one of the most important operas of our time. Based on the book by Sister Helen Prejean which also inspired the Oscar-winning film, it explores the complex relationship between Louisiana death row inmate Joseph De Rocher and Prejean, the nun who becomes his reluctant spiritual adviser. With a brilliant score by Jake Heggie and a gripping libretto by Terrence McNally, this modern masterpiece has stunned audiences with realism and haunting eloquence since its 2000 premiere. Starring Tim Mix as Joseph De Rocher, Aleksandra Romano as Sister Helen Prejean, and Adrienne Danrich as Sister Rose. Directed by Octavio Cardenas. Conducted by Jerome Shannon.

Performed in English with English supertitles. This opera contains explicit content and is not recommended for patrons under 16.

Music: Classical / Opera Music Northern Delaware
