Rufus Wainwright was born in 1974, the son of folk artists Kate McGarrigle, and Loudon Wainwright III, but he has achieved success by carving out his own individual sound in the worlds of rock, opera, theater, dance, and film. .The New York-based composer and performer first won attention through his self-titled debut album Rufus Wainwright in 1998 on the DreamWorks label. The piano-driven recording backed by complex string arrangements, which introduced listeners to his dry wit and world-weary singing style, set him apart from the mainstream and was an immediate critical success, receiving a Juno Award for Best Alternative Album for this and his second album Poses. Since then he has released three DVDs and eight albums, including Rufus Does Judy at Carnegie Hall, nominated for a Grammy, and a DVD of his 2007 Judy Garland tribute at the London Palladium. He has collaborated with everyone from Elton John, David Byrne, and Rosanne Cash to Robert Wilson, and composed the original music for choreographer Stephen Petronio’s BLOOM, commissioned for the Young People’s Chorus of New York City. This season New York City Opera will present the New York premiere of Mr. Wainwright’s first opera Prima Donna.
