Opera Idaho is continuing its 49th season with a modern American piece, “Dead Man Walking.”

It’s based on Sister Helen Prejean's acclaimed 1993 memoir of the same name, which tells of her time working with death row inmates at the Louisiana State Penitentiary.

Conductor Sara Jobin and general director Mark Junkert join Idaho Matters to talk more about the upcoming performance.
