Dead Man Walking

Screen Shot 2018-01-18 at 6.06.32 PMTeatro Real presents the Spanish premiere of Dead Man Walking, the first opera by composer Jake Heggie, based on a non-fiction book of the same name by Sister Helen Prejean. Dead Man Walking – slang in American prisons for a prisoner on death row as he walks from his cell to the electric chair – is a reflection on the death penalty, and at the same time, a study in the redemptive power of love.
