Roger Waters - Ca IraWith his work on The Wall now virtually complete (with presumably just the home release of the film, along with any other cinema screenings, to come) Roger Waters has turned his attention back on his opera Ca Ira, for its US premiere at Nashville's Schermerhorn Symphony Center. There will be two performances, with Roger narrating both, on January 29th and 30th, 2015.

The piece is scored for full orchestra, four solo voices, chorus and a children's chorus. The Tennessean newspaper state that the Nashville Symphony, Nashville Symphony Chorus and Blair Children’s Chorus will perform onstage with Waters. We understand that this will be a resumption of his narration role he performed on its last performance, in Gothenburg, Sweden, last year.

"We are thrilled and honored to have a legendary talent like Roger Waters at the Schermerhorn to debut this phenomenal production for an American audience," Alan Valentine, Nashville Symphony president and CEO, said in a news release. "We embrace any opportunity to expand our artistic mission with adventurous, ground-breaking projects, and 'Ca Ira' promises to be two nights of entertainment that Middle Tennesseans will never forget."

The ticket presales for Ca Ira begin at 10am CDT today for Nashville Symphony donors and subscribers. The public sale begins at 10am CDT on Friday at, via phone at 615-687-6400 or at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center box office in Nashville, Tennessee.

UPDATE: A review of the performance can be read through this link.
