“Another Brick in the Wall: The Opera” Premiers in Montreal

On Saturday, Opéra de Montréal premiered “Another Brick in the Wall: The Opera” a remake of Roger Waters’ Pink Floyd rock-opera “The Wall”. People were giving it a standing ovation before it even started…when they announced Roger Waters was actually in attendance.

 

 

It was pretty cool, since it was nearly 40 years ago in Montreal that he took out his anger on a rowdy concertgoer and, according to legend, spat in his face. The embarrassment he felt afterwards inspired him to write The Wall, which has since become a double LP, a movie and legendary concert tours by Pink Floyd and Waters. Now, it’s a modern opera – using some of Floyd’s original music, and some new stuff.

 

 

It’s part of Montreal’s 375th-anniversary celebrations.
