Another Brick in the Wall: The Opera Is Coming to Toronto
This November, Toronto opera and rock fans alike can enjoy Another Brick in the Wall: The Opera. Based on the lyrics and music of Roger Waters’ The Wall, this operatic version was composed by Julien Bilodeau with the concept and stage direction by Dominic Champagne. As a timeless work, an operatic adaptation seemed an ideal approach for the thematic material. A team of exceptional design professionals, soloists, chorus singers, and an orchestra will give Roger Waters’ The Wall a new dimension at Toronto’s Sony Centre for Performing Arts.
With an incredibly successful world premiere in Montreal including with sold out shows and close to 29,000 spectators: a record for Opéra de Montréal. The US premiere at the Cincinnati Opera this past July was the most successful in the company’s 98 year history.
A psychological drama inspired by the life of Roger Waters, The Wall represents the difficulties faced by an entire generation confronted with destruction of its dreams and the world. Shown through the feelings of insanity and insulation of the main character Pink, he also realizes that he consented to the events that shaped him as a person.
You can buy tickets starting tomorrow here. Tickets start at $50.
The show runs November 13-14, 16-17, and 23.
