Reviews:

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.
