Presented By The Concert Factory:
Juno Award winner Rufus Wainwright, praised by the New York Times for his “genuine originality,” has established himself as one of the great male vocalists, composers, and songwriters of his generation. The Concert Factory proudly welcomes Rufus Wainwright for a one night only, solo performance.
Rufus Wainwright has released eight studio albums, three DVDs, and three live albums. He has collaborated with a wide range of artists including Elton John, David Byrne, Robbie Williams, Mark Ronson, Joni Mitchell, and Burt Bacharach. His album “Rufus Does Judy”, recorded at Carnegie Hall in 2006, was nominated for a Grammy Award.
His acclaimed first opera, Prima Donna, premiered at the Manchester International Festival in July 2009 and has since been presented in London, Toronto, and at BAM in New York. This summer it will be performed at 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 worldwide release of his latest album, Take All My Loves: 9 Shakespeare Sonnets, on Deutsche Grammophon in Spring 2016.
