Radio interviews with Rufus Wainwright


Rufus Wainwright was in the studio this week doing a couple of interviews with a few different radio stations, discussing his new opera, Hadrian, which he just finished. Hadrian is Wainwright's second opera, following Prima Donna, which premiered at the Manchester International Film Festival in 2009.

Rufus Wainwright has established himself as one of the great male vocalists and songwriters of his generation. Elton John has referred to him as "the greatest songwriter of all time" and he has been praised by the New York Times for his "genuine originality."
