Another Brick in the Wall The Opera - Montreal 2017 Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Thursday, 31 December 2015

Roger WatersWhilst it isn't something to look forward to in 2016, something a little further in the distance to start thinking about, particularly for our friends in Canada (initially, anyway).

The Montreal Symphonic Orchestra is working with Roger Waters for the staging of an opera about the Wall titled "Another Brick in the Wall The Opera" for Montreal's celebrations of their 375 year anniversary in 2017.

Roger is quoted as saying that he is thrilled and look forward to work with the "Quebecois" once again. The opera is intended to tour Opera Houses around the world, once the Montreal premiere has taken place. An article in the Montreal newspaper La Presse also revealed that Dominic Champagne will be the one responsible for the "Mise en scene". Champagne is the one who created the incredible show "Love" about the Beatles for Cirques du Soleil, which is currently playing to sell-out crowds in Las Vegas.

As yet there are NO confirmed details of dates or locations, for the Montreal staging nor for any subsequent performances, but once we have them, we will bring the news to you as ever. Our thanks to Paul Cousineau for the information.
