    Kentucky Opera Lecture Series: Dead Man Walking with author Sister Helen Prejean and composer Jake Heggie

    Main Library, Thursday, October 26, 6:30 p.m

    Faith. Justice. Redemption. These may be familiar operatic themes, but Dead Man Walking is no ordinary opera: the story revolves around a nun and her journey to advise a condemned prisoner on death row. Set in contemporary Louisiana, the opera is based on the nonfiction book of the same name by Sister Helen Prejean and composed by Jake Heggie.

    Join special guests Sister Prejean and Heggie for a discussion about opera, redemption, and the criminal justice system. Ian Derrer, General Director of Kentucky Opera, serves as moderator. Their thoughtful dialogue will offer a unique background to Dead Man Walking, performed by Kentucky Opera on October 27 and 29 at the Brown Theatre.

    This lecture is the second of a three-part series with the Kentucky Opera. The program is free, but tickets are required

    To reserve tickets, call (502) 574-1644.
