On the heels of releasing live recordings and concentrating on writing his first opera, singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright put out an album of new material this year. All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu features original music and adaptations of Shakespeare sonnets, focusing on a simple-but-dynamic piano and voice aesthetic. Performing a show at the fittingly sophisticated Music Center at Strathmore, Rufus Wainwright, along with sister Martha Wainwright, will once again astonish his audience.
Rufus has asked us to pass on this message to everyone attending his shows on the tour:
The first part of the program will be performed as a song cycle with visuals by Douglas Gordon. During the first set, Rufus has asked that you please do not applaud until after he has left the stage. His exit is part of the piece. After a brief intermission, Rufus will return for the second part of the show during which you may applaud to your heart's content. Please also refrain from photography during the first set.
The independent producers of this event are paying a fee to rent the Music Center at Strathmore for this performance. Posting of this event on www.strathmore.org or email communications from Strathmore in no way implies support of, or artistic and program content approval by the Strathmore Hall Foundation, Inc.
