Rufus changes his mind

August 29, 2008

The Metropolitan Opera

Rufus Wainwright has decided to “drop his plans” to compose an opera for the Met in 2014. Rufus had to compose the piece in French and Peter Gelb insisted on English. They parted on good terms. The New York Times wrote a piece on it a few days ago.

PRIMA DONNA will have its premiere next July at the Manchester International Festival in England. Rufus is orchestrating the score now.
