Roger Waters to debut opera segment
Performance to be part of Malta celebration

Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters will debut a portion of his new opera, "Ca Ira," at an April 30 celebration to mark the nation of Malta's entry into the European Union (EU).

The Times of Malta reported that Waters will premier a 15-minute segment of the composition.

The event will run between 8:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. at the Grand Harbour, and will be accompanied by a light show by German artist Gert Hof.

The news comes on the heals of an announcement that a recording of the opera, about the French Revolution, will likely be released this year, with a possible European tour to follow.
