For its first major production, Productions Opera Concept M.P. chose to revisit a masterpiece of the British progressive rock of the '70.
ANOTHER BRICK IN THE WALL – L’OPÉRA : A concept… a story:
The Wall is a concept album, exploring themes of abandonment and personal isolation. It is a rock opera that follows Pink, a character whom Roger Waters, Pink Floyd’s famous singer and bassist, modelled after himself
This timeless work is now offered in operatic version with 8 soloists, 48 chorus-singers, 71 musicians, 21 extras, and the exceptional creative team gave a quite new dimension to the work of Roger Waters.
The Productions Opera Concept MP Inc aim at setting up innovative, contemporary and multidisciplinary projects in the field of opera.

The meeting of rock and opera is natural in this beginning of century when the various forms of performing art converge, and Productions Opera Concept M.P. are the first lyric producer to propose the meeting of rock’n’roll and the operatic works and wanting to immortalize a work stemming from this marriage of the kinds.
The new dimension which we bring is to recompose the music as a real opera, keeping the original melodic lines, and not only making a symphonic musical arrangement.
