another brick in the wall—The opera
Original Words and Music by Roger Waters
Operatic version composed by Julien Bilodeau
Concept and stage direction by Dominic Champagne
Presenting the U.S. Premiere in July 2018
Cincinnati Opera is proud to present the United States premiere of Another Brick in the Wall—The Opera, based on Roger Waters’s legendary album The Wall, in celebration of our return to Cincinnati Music Hall for our 2018 Summer Festival.
With original words and music by Roger Waters, the operatic version of Another Brick in the Wall—The Opera is composed by Julien Bilodeau and brought to life through the concept and stage direction of Dominic Champagne. Another Brick in the Wall—The Opera completely transforms Roger Waters’s original work into a standard operatic form, with eight soloists, 48 chorus members, and a 70-piece orchestra.
Cincinnati Opera is a co-producer of the opera with Productions Opéra Concept M.P., Inc., led by executive director Pierre Dufour. Another Brick in the Wall—The Opera receives its world premiere on March 11, 2017 at the Opéra de Montréal in Québec, Canada. The opera has already proven to be tremendously popular. Though seven performances were originally announced, to meet an unprecedented demand for tickets the company has since expanded to a run of ten performances.
Single tickets for Cincinnati Opera's U.S. premiere of Another Brick in the Wall—The Opera will be available in a limited engagement presale, with details to be announced at a later date. To receive the latest news and ticket sale information, sign up below!
