Rave Reviews for "Dead Man Walking"

Philip Cutlip in Dead Man Walking

With and all-star cast and the composer and librettist in the audience, the Houston Grand Opera scored an artistic triumph with their production of Jake Heggie's "Dead Man Walking."

The Houston Chronicle wrote:

Cutlip's De Rocher is, as he must be, a major source of the darkness. He sings with tough force and acts the hardened killer with the right scary edge and jeering arrogance. Then as Sister Helen gradually begins to reach him, he lets us see glimmers of humanity, his fear, his shame. Cutlip makes the transition very convincing, from his initial wariness, to the pained confession of his guilt to Sister Helen, and finally to their bond of forgiveness and support as he prepares to die.
