The Piper at the Gates of Dawn
The Wall opera coming to Montreal
Posted by madhack on Mar 3, 2016
2017 marks the 40th anniversary of the Montreal stadium concert that led Roger Waters to write what's arguably the band's most significant album, The Wall. He returned to the Olympic Stadium there to officially announce the rumored Another Brick in the Wall—The Opera, to be performed by Opéra de Montréal in March 2017. In an interview and video with the Montreal Gazette, Waters explains the album's background in the alienation from the audience that he felt at that show and talks more about the process of adapting the music to opera with the help of symphonic composer Julien Bilodeau. Some pre-sale tickets are on sale as of today; they can be purchased at Opéra de Montréal's site.
