Indiana University Opera presents "Dead Man Walking" this October

INDIANA---The Indiana University Jacobs School of Music presents "Dead Man Walking" this October, one of the most important operas of the new century. Based on Sister Helen Prejean’s book (also the source for the blockbuster film) about her experiences as a spiritual adviser to prisoners on Death Row, "Dead Man Walking" is a “masterpiece of words, music, and emotions” according to The New York Times. It opens with the brutal murder of two teenagers by Joseph de Rocher. It ends with his execution, Sister Helen at his side. In between, it is a searing emotional journey. [Tickets]
