British Rock Rocks

I noticed with interest that the International Herald Tribune has listed the great rock operas. The top seven include five British productions, one Canadian, and one American.

The Who - Tommy. This opera was performed at the Metropolitan Opera House and has been made into a Broadway Musical.

Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway. This was the band's last production before Peter Gabriel left.

Pink Floyd - The Wall has been staged a number of times, and turned into a film in 1982.

Iron Maiden - The Seventh Son of the Seventh Son

Marillion - Brave. This has been made into a film.

Rush - 2112. This is a Canadian production.

It's all great music, and it's fascinating to see that in this genre British bands still dominate the stage.
