A unique performance of the famous rock opera The Wall is coming to Ljubljana. Pink Floyd’s eleventh studio album, released in 1979, explores themes of loneliness and personal isolation in post-war Britain and contains a very strong anti-war message. The Wall is one of the most famous concept albums of all time, and tells the story of Pink, a character based on the bassist and main creative force behind the project, Roger Waters, and the founder and former singer and guitarist of the band, Syd Barrett. The protagonist Pink lost his father in World War II, was raised by an overprotective mother, abused by teachers, and when his marriage broke down withdrew from society and built a metaphorical wall around himself. Audiences will be treated to performances of songs from The Wall tour by some of the original musicians who worked with Pink Floyd or Roger Waters. The concert will be visually enhanced with a stunning light show and video projections, fitting for a celebration of one of rock music’s greatest achievements.
The performance will be English without Slovenian subtitles.
