Based on the popular novel and movie, Dead Man Walking is an opera that tells the journey of a Louisiana nun who becomes the spiritual advisor to a convicted murderer on Angola’s death row. Pretty heavy stuff, right? Well, to bring a little levity (and attention) to Opera On the Avalon’s upcoming performance, we hit the streets of St. John’s. Literally. Using spray chalk, we created some ‘dead man walking’ outlines on buildings and streets throughout the downtown area to help spread the word.
