Poetry and the singer-songwriter

Rufus Wainwright, one of the greatest singer-songwriters of his generation, has released seven studio albums and three live ones. He has worked with artists of the stature of Elton John, David Byrne, Mark Ronson, Joni Mitchell and Burt Bacharach. At just 14, he was named Canada's young musician of the year and later received the Juno Award for Best Alternative Music Album. In addition, his record Rufus Does Judy, recorded at the Carnegie Hall in 2006, was nominated for a Grammy.

His acclaimed first opera, Prima Donna, premiered at the Manchester International Festival in 2009 and since then it has been performed in London, Toronto and at the BAM in New York. In 2010, the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra commissioned Wainwright to compose and perform Five Shakespeare Sonnets, an opera for orchestra and vocals of Shakespeare's sonnets that since it was first staged has been performed by orchestras from all over the world such as the Chicago and Montreal symphony orchestras.
