Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Disarmingly beautiful - New York Times. Thrilling - Manchester Evening News.
Breathtaking design - The Guardian.

Rufus has always had a deep-rooted passion for opera and has written his very first opera Prima Donna in 2009, which will now for the first time be recorded on disc! Prima Donna is slated for release on 11 September, tying in with concert performances of the opera in Europe and Asia.

SHAKESPEARE SONNETS
The 2nd album, which is on the significant release schedule, is a collection of songs based on Shakespeare sonnets, sung by Anna Prohaska, Rufus himself, and a surprise female guest star name to be announced soon.

Critically acclaimed debut opera by Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and composer Rufus Wainwright, first time on disc.

Prima Donna centers on a day in the life of an ageing opera singer, who is anxiously preparing for her comeback in 1970s Paris. Once a soprano with a powerhouse voice and a reputation to match, she's been discarded disdained by critics and forgotten by audiences. But the diva is determined to prove her doubters wrong: all she asks is a chance to reprise the role that made her reputation all those years ago.

Review

Prima Donna, was written and performed during the most dramatic period of my life to date, and considering my life, that s pretty dramatic! New arrivals, death, terrible defeat and glorious triumph line the tale of this work both on stage and off, a tale that is still unfolding and that I would both like you to know and even more importantly, be a part of. --Rufus Wainwright

A love song to opera ... saturated in the musical styles of opera s golden age --The Times
