Wainwright opera premieres in England
Jul 14, 2009
Rufus Wainwright’s Prima Donna opened Friday at Manchester‘s Palace Theater as part of the British city’s International Festival. Critics have not been particularly kind to the gay star’s first opera, performed in French no less. While crediting the performance’s “inspired touches,” The New York Times declared that The Diva Has Issues. Prefer to judge for yourself? In the last part of the BBC‘s recent documentary on Wainwright, you’ll see glimpses of the production’s rehearsals, as well as interviews and live performances from Wainwright himself. At any rate, surely it’s worth the trip to check out the extravaganza and hang out before and after in the thriving Manchester gay scene, centered on Canal Street.
