Roger Waters To Debut Opera In Russia

Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters is planning to debut his opera Ca Ira in St Petersburg, Russia.

Plans to premiere the opera in Paris have been scrapped according to fansite with the proposed new venue looking like The Winter Palace in St Petersburg.

A date is yet to be set for the premiere but fans in Malta heard three songs ‘Ca Ira Overture,’ ‘Taking of Bastille,’ and ‘Sugar Indigo’ during the European Union celebrations last weekend. The three songs were used as the soundtrack to the fireworks as 10 new countries became part of the EU.

Waters has been working on the opera for over 20 years. He had initially hoped to finish it by 1989 for the bi-centennial of the French Revolution.

The work is planned for release as a CD and possibly DVD. When it is released it will be available in both English and a French version.
