Pink Floyd‘s Roger Waters spoke to The Guardian recently about turning ‘The Wall’ into an opera and how the classic album is more relevant than ever in the age of President Trump.

The 1979 album is being rewritten into an opera format in collaboration between the Pink Floyd bassist and Opéra de Montréal. The performance debuts on March 11 in Montreal.
