Presented by Minnesota Opera
The most performed new opera of the 21st century, this heartbreaking story of grief, grace, and redemption is a modern classic. Based on Sister Helen Prejean’s memoir that inspired the Oscar-winning movie of the same name, it recounts her courageous struggle to provide spiritual guidance to a condemned Louisiana murderer in the months leading up to his execution. With a powerful libretto by four-time Tony Award® winner Terrence McNally and lyrical music by Jake Heggie—praised as one of the great living opera composers—Dead Man Walking has moved audiences worldwide since its premiere.
