Rufus Wainwright names new project

Big follow up planned for 'Release The Stars'

Rufus Wainwright 2005
Rufus Wainwright is planning a big follow up to his album ’Release The Stars’.

The singer has been commissioned to write the opera ’Prima Donna’, a libretto commissioned by the Met in Manhattan.

Wainwright told Paper magazine: “It’s a small story about one day in the life of a soprano. There aren’t huge set pieces of historial shifts - it’s only got four characters.”

Wainwright is currently on tour in the US but is set to play Glastonbury's Other Stage on June 22.
