Rufus Wainwright, one of the great male vocalists, composers, and songwriters of his generation, has released eight studio albums, three DVDs, and three live albums. He has collaborated with artists ranging from Elton John, David Byrne, RobbieWilliams Mark Ronson, Joni Mitchell to Burt Bacharach. His album DzRufus Does Judydz recorded at Carnegie Hall in 2006 was nominated for a Grammy.

His acclaimed first opera, Prima Donna, premiered at the Manchester International Festival in July 2009 and has since been presented in London, Toronto and BAM in New York. This summer it will be performed at the Armel Opera Festival in Hungary and Augsburg Theatre in Germany. In 2015, Deutsche Grammaphon released a studio recording of the opera recorded with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Rufus celebrated the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death with the release of his latest album Take All My Loves: 9 Shakespeare Sonnets on Deutsche Grammophon worldwide in Spring 2016. The Canadian Opera Company commissioned Wainwright’s second opera, about Roman Emperor Hadrian, to premiere in Toronto in the fall of 2018.

    Because I love everything Rufus does! Even the gum commercial!

      Pretty please, pick me! I want to get coolness points with my son and daughter-in-law. Rufus Wainwright tickets would do the trick! (Plus I really really want to go!) He said, “Let the little fairy in you fly!”. I wrote a song once that includes the lyric “Let your dragons fly”–it’s meant to be.

  89. hannah geason January 4, 2018 at 2:53 pm #

    An exquisitely beautiful, sweeping voice that can sing just about anything. I’ve played my Rufus Does Judy at Carnegie Hall album so much it broke. His voice has helped me through some difficult times, whispering answers to me when I didn’t even know it.
    I turn 25 in two weeks and seeing Rufus would help kick off my next quarter century quite splendidly.

  90. Kristen M January 4, 2018 at 2:57 pm #

    Yes! What a great show.

  91. Claire January 4, 2018 at 3:11 pm #

  102. Erin January 5, 2018 at 12:35 pm #

    I first hear Rufas Wainwright in ’99 while sitting in a cafe in Berlin. Over the years I have become a fan of the entire Wainwright family. The show will be a wonderful way to ring in the new year. I would be honored and bless to attend this performance.

  103. Aubrey Patterson January 5, 2018 at 12:40 pm #
