Guilt and atonement: As his spiritual guide, Sister Helen Prejean convinces Joseph de Rocher, who has been sentenced to death, to accept responsibility for his crime. Jake Heggie’s suggestive cinematic music is based on the traditional forms of musical theatre. An attempt to react to burning questions of the times using the genre of opera.
