Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters Agrees to Operatic Take of 'The Wall'

Roger Waters 'The Wall'

Pink Floyd's 'The Wall', which was mostly the brainchild of former Floyd frontman Roger Waters, is going to be an opera.

Waters was very reluctant about the idea initially, feeling that the two were not really reconcilable.

After he was pressed, however, he relented, which allowed the opera version of  'The Wall' to become a reality.

It was announced recently that the opera would indeed become a reality:

OM artistic director Michel Beaulac confirmed that the company will produce Quebec composer Julien Bilodeau’s operatic take of The Wall at Place des Arts.

Sounds good.

It will begin in Montreal, playing next season, and I, for one, would certainly be interested in actually seeing this in person myself.
