Opéra de Montréal’s 2016-2017 season will be headlined by the staging of Another Brick In The Wall – an opera based on Pink Floyd’s iconic 1979 album The Wall. An announcement of the season, including word of Another Brick In The Wall – The Opera, was attended by Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters who wrote the lyrics and music for the famed LP.

Waters wrote The Wall after an incident at a 1977 Pink Floyd show at Montreal’s Olympic Stadium in which he spat on a fan and guitarist David Gilmour refused to perform on the band’s encore.
