Royal Conservatoire of Scotland: Dead Man Walking

Based on the book by Louisiana nun Sister Helen Prejean, the UK premiere of the opera ‘Dead Man Walking’ by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland tells the real-life story of Joseph de Rocher, sentenced to death for the rape and murder of a young boy and girl. Sister Prejean becomes de Rocher’s spiritual adviser while he awaits execution. Said Rebecca Franks of The Times : ‘This is an opera for our age, as likely to intrigue fans of true-life podcasts and Louis Theroux documentaries about the underbelly of the US as devotees of Verdi and Puccini.’
