ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL – THE OPÉRA
Based on the lyrics and music of Roger Waters's The Wall. Operatic version composed by Julien Bilodeau. Stage direction by Dominic Champagne.
An opera happening to mark the 375th anniversary of Montreal: Roger Water’s legendary work, The Wall, on the opera stage! The premiere of this adaptation on the Montreal stage is highly significant, as it was after a concert at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium in 1977 that Roger Waters got the idea for the project. Starting out as a concept album (1979) and then a film (1982), The Wall is a psychological drama inspired by Roger Waters’ life. Through a depiction of Pink’s feelings of alienation and isolation, The Wall is representative of the difficulties of an entire generation, whose members are faced with the collapse of their dreams and the world they know.
