WNO: Dead Man Walking

February 27, 2017 - March 13, 2017

If you loved Sean Penn and Susan Sarandon’s performances in the renowned crime drama Dead Man Walking, make sure to buy tickets to the Washington National Opera’s rendition of the story, based on the non-fiction book by Sister Helen Prejean. The opera explores the relationship between a convicted murderer sentenced to death who claims to be innocent and a nun who consents to be his spiritual advisor. Those interested in learning more about the process of rehearsing and performing the show, which will be performed at Washington’s Kennedy Center and directed by Francesca Zambello, can attend after-show talkbacks with the cast and creative team on specific dates.

Book here to stay with the Graham Georgetown Hotel during the show. For more information, check out the event website here.
