The Metropolitan Opera: Dead Man Walking by Jake Heggie, libretto by Terrence McNally

Mon, Sept 18, 7:30 pm

Experience highlights from the most widely performed new opera of the last 20 years, Dead Man Walking, before the highly anticipated Met premiere on September 26. American composer Jake Heggie's masterpiece has been reimagined in a haunting new production by Ivo van Hove. Based on Sister Helen Prejean's memoir about her fight for the soul of a condemned murderer, Dead Man Walking matches the high drama of its subject with Heggie's beautiful and poignant music and a brilliant libretto by Terrence McNally. Met General Manager Peter Gelb moderates a discussion with Sister Helen Prejean, Met Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, mezzo-sopranos Joyce DiDonato and Susan Graham, and bass-baritone Ryan McKinny. The cast also performs selections from the opera.
