Why See Rufus Wainwright?

ConcertsContemporary Pop

The Gifted Singer Songwriter Hits The Road

Rufus Wainwright's lush, theatrical pop harks back to the traditions of Tin Pan Alley, cabaret and even opera. Son of Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, brother to musical siblings Martha and Wainwright, songwriting is in his blood. He remains firmly out of their shadows though, with a folk legacy of his own that includes seven studio albums and a fully-fledged opera. Catch the gifted polymath as he hits in , ,

Wainwright's shows have become synonymous with orchestral backing and a theatricality that underpins his bold, confessional style. Blessed with a deep tenor voice that's filled with emotion, he can however make a statement with a mere whisper. Unafraid to mine the bittersweet depths of his soul, an eye-opening evening with this poet troubadour is not to be missed!

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, 'Hamilton' is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.

Music is only understood when one goes away singing it and only loved when one falls asleep with it in one's head, and finds it still there on waking up the next morning.
