Co-founder and former member of PINK FLOYD, Roger Waters performs his adaptation of Stravinsky’s theatrical work: ‘The Soldier’s Tale’!

Rock Legend Waters’ presents an album inspired by his personal connection to the tragedies of war. Water’s grandfather died in battle during World War I and his father went missing during World War II. Roger’s personal connection to Stravinsky’s 'The Soldier’s Tale' is evident through his adaptation of the English translation.

For this new recording of this classic, Roger has rewritten the text, telling the whole of the harrowing modern fairy tale, playing not just the Soldier, the Devil and the Narrator, but all the other characters as well!
Roger performed ‘The Soldier's Tale’ back in 2008 with the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival Orchestra. It clearly made a big impression on him, resulting in this recorded collaboration with the same orchestra, which certainly sounds very intriguing.

‘Soldier's Tale’ is released on 26th October 2018.
