Dead Man Walking - Opera

Kennedy Center

6:30 p.m. - Opera Insights with Sidwell Friends History Department Chair Steve Steinbach

7:30 p.m. - Performance of Dead Man Walking

Dead Man Walking is inspired by the true story of Sister Helen Prejean, who has devoted her life to ending capital punishment. The opera, by Jake Heggie, focuses on Sister Helen's experiences counseling a convicted murderer on Louisiana's death row, as well as her interactions with his family and the families of his victims. The emotionally powerful drama raises fundamental – and none too easy – questions not simply about the death penalty, but also about the nature of justice, suffering, compassion, and redemption.

The Sidwell Friends community is presented with a special offer from Washington National Opera. Mention offer number "245112" while ordering Kennedy Center tickets by phone or at the Box Office for 20% off select orchestra seats for Dead Man Walking on Friday, March 3.

The Arts at Sidwell Friends School

The Arts program at Sidwell Friends reflects our conviction that all our students have within them the light of creativity and can learn much of value from their own and others’ creative work. The program encourages students to discover, develop, and express their own creative impulses and talents and to celebrate the fundamental place of the Arts in human life. Through courses in visual and performance arts and opportunities to share their efforts with the wider community, students discern the historical, cultural, and social context and meaning of the Arts as they learn the importance of process as well as product. They learn to take risks, to grow from failure, and to strive for excellence. They encounter the power of creative energy and personal discipline through both individual work and commitment to an ensemble. Through these experiences, they come to understand more about Art as an expression of the Quaker belief that "there is that of God in every person."
