    Dead Man Walking

    Jake Heggie's Dead Man Walking receives its New England premiere thirteen years after its critically acclaimed debut at San Francisco Opera. With a libretto by Terrence McNally, adapted from the first-hand account of Sister Helen Prejean, C.S.J., it speaks of faith, redemption, and the bonds of family as seen through the eyes of a nun who establishes a unique relationship with an inmate on Death Row at a Louisiana State Penitentiary.

    Director: David Gram
    Music Director: Michael Sakir
    Featuring members of Boston City Singers

    THIS OPERA CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE AND A BRIEF MOMENT OF ON-STAGE VIOLENCE. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.

    This program is supported in part by the Somerville Arts Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and in part by a grant from the Boston Cultural Council, a local agency which is funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, administered by the Mayor's Office of Arts, Tourism, and Special Events.
