***/\===A classical opera in three acts by PINK FLOYD'S ROGER WATERS (His new incarnation is as composer of Ça Ira, a three-act opera about the French Revolution that took 16 years to write) after original libretto by Nadine and Etienne Roda-Gil.
Waters was writing songs and orchestra-music for this story, that was intended to be part of the French revolution bi-centenary in 1989. The original English working title for the opera was: "We'll make it", but the project was not finished in time. Waters probably stopped the work when he started planning the Berlin concert (1990). In 1998 he continued the work on the project together with composer Rick Wentworth and the result is scheduled to be released "early this millenium". Roger Waters recent tours and recordings for a new concept album has probably pushed the opera a little further away once again.
There will be a semi-staged concert performance of "Ça Ira" live in Rome at the 2,000 seat Parco della Musica with the Roma Sinfonietta and the Cora Lirico Sinfonico Romano choir on November 17th and 18th, 2005.!!!
*CA IRA is about the French Revolution presented in 3 acts in a sort of circus setting. In the beginning the king and queen issue rules that bother the general populace that result in them losing their heads by ACT III*
