Posted by pulse on May 30, 2005
Roger Waters's long-awaited classical opera "Ça Ira" now has an official release date per Sony/Columbia Records. The "operatic history of the French Revolution" will hit store shelves September 27th, 2005. The first edition digipack sounds mouthwatering:
Full Opera On Two Hybrid SACDs, Bonus "Making Of 'Ça Ira'" DVD, & 60-Page Four-Color Booklet Containing Libretto, Cast Credits, & Original Illustrations.
Roger has been working on this musical opus since 1989. The original score was set to French text, but Roger states the English version has been in the works since 1997 and is more than a mere translation. He claims the spirit of the work is maintained and emphasizes "the human potential for change." You can read the official press release here.
