Vancouver Opera’s 4th annual Festival opens with the West Coast premiere of Another Brick in the Wall: The Opera,based on the lyrics and music of Roger Waters’The Wall. Roger Waters was lyricist of the band, Pink Floyd and the opera is a psychological drama inspired by Waters’ life. A thrilling score by Quebec composer Julien Bilodeau transforms the iconic album into an operatic drama–perfect for opera goers and rock fans alike. Eye-popping video projections designed by Johnny Ranger complement the action on an over-sized video screen. The result is exquisite and hypnotic. The opera had its world premiere in Montreal and sold-out ten performances at Place des Arts. The Vancouver cast features Nathan Keoghan as Pink, and Caroline Bleau as The Wife. France Bellemare sings The Mother.
In English with English SurTitles™ projected above the stage.
