Based upon the book by Sister Helen Prejean, Dead Man Walking is the true story of Sister Prejean’s 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).

This magnificent work, starring superstar mezzo-soprano and Georgia native Jamie Barton as Sister Helen and Michael Mayes as de Rocher, will penetrate your heart and mind.
