A New Opera Inspired By Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’ Is Coming [Listen]

first_imgWhether you love or hate it, The Wall is a cornerstone of the Pink Floyd discography. Written largely by Roger Waters, the 1979 album is the subject for a new opera called Another Brick In The Wall. The opera was announced as part of a schedule revealing for the Opera de Montreal at the Olympic Stadium, where Waters himself was on hand for the announcement.It seems that Waters was initially uninterested in the project. As he told CBC News, “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. But they were extremely persuasive.”He continued, saying, “[They] played me some midi of what they had been working on and I confess, I sat there not expecting to be moved, and I was moved. Very moved. So I approach this project with great enthusiasm.”While Another Brick In The Wall won’t make its debut until March 2017, you can listen to excerpts from the musical below:[H/T JamBase]last_img read more
