music news 14/03/2017

An opera based on Pink Floyd‘s 1979 classic The Wall made its debut in Montreal on Saturday.

Another Brick in the Wall: The Opera will make its debut in the US at the Cincinnati Music Hall next year.

Roger Waters attended the performance of Another Brick in the Wall: The Opera by the Opera de Montreal at Place des Arts.

“It had been my experience that experiments in collaboration between the worlds of rock and roll and the worlds of symphonic music were generally disastrous and should be embarked upon with extreme trepidation,” Waters told Rolling Stone.

I sat there not expecting to be moved, and I was moved.

Another Brick in the Wall: The Opera will be performed in the US by the 70-piece Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, along with the returning Dupuis.
