Waters said that he replied to Dufour with a "rather pompous" letter which claimed that any conversion of rock music into orchestral music always became an "unmitigated disaster". However, the production team sent Waters computer-generated renditions of a few of composer Julien Bilodeau's pieces from the opera, and Waters was convinced to join and support the production as the librettist.
Waters said he was "very moved" by the music and went into the project with "great enthusiasm". The opera's plot is taken directly from the movie Pink Floyd - The Wall.
A musician named Pink reflects on his lonely childhood through a swirl of flashbacks and chemically-induced hallucinations.
He watches as he constructs a symbolic wall around his life to cope with the death of his father, his overbearing mother, his depression, his drug addiction, and other emotional experiences. As he ages, his madness intensifies, and he hallucinates himself as a dictator and his concert audience as a neo-Nazi rally.
This hallucination drives him to imagine a judge ruling him innocent, setting him free, and ordering the wall to be taken down. While the album's lyrics, songs, and song order are maintained, Pink Floyd's original musical themes are extended by orchestral variations and interludes within the opera.

Kory Grow of Rolling Stone said that the production team "[t]ransformed rock and roll into pure opera," and that this opera is "here to stay. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
