GötaplatsenBack in March, we told you that there was another performance of Ça Ira coming up this year, to follow on from the four shows in São Paulo, Brazil, in May. The opera is being performed on August 13th, 2013, at G�taplatsen, which is a public square in Gothenburg, Sweden, at the southern end of Kungsportsavenyn (The King's Gate Avenue), the city's main street. The staging of the opera is the grand opening event of the Göteborgs kulturkalas/Gothenburg Culture Festival, which runs from August 13th - 18th, and of course, Roger himself is in Gothenburg to perform at the Ullevi Stadium on August 17th.

With his proximity to the city, Roger takes an evening off from his Wall tour to attend this show. Whilst the performances thus far have, at best, had Roger introducing the evening, this one is quite different. For this particular show Roger will himself take part in his opera. He will be narrating the opera, clearly visible to the audience, sitting in a leather armchair on one edge of the stage. The opera was written for the 200th anniversary of the French Revolution, but as many of you know, received its world premiere in 2005 in Rome. has more details of the event, the festival, and the venue. The performance is free - no tickets required - but we would naturally recommend that if you are attending, you arrive early to secure a decent place in the audience area.

Our thanks to Jochen Klug for letting us know about this. If anyone is in the area, or even better, attending the show, we'd love to see ANY pictures, posters, reviews, newspaper reports, and anything else you come across for this show - we look forward to hearing from you! In the meantime, here's the official advert for the event:
