Rufus Wainwright's Prima Donna

 "From Judy Garland to composing an opera entirely in French this excellent documentary explores the unique talent of Rufus Wainwright.

From recreating Judy Garland's legendary Carnegie Hall concert to writing and composing an opera entirely in French, most musicians wouldn't be up to the task, but then Rufus Wainwright isn't like most musicians. Elton John has called him the 'best songwriter in the world' and this excellent documentary following Wainwright as he begins work on the opera is justification enough for such high praise. Exploring the flamboyant performer's past, his early career and the musical highlights of hit albums and tours which have all brought him to his most challenging composition to date. All the Wainwright clan are here talking candidly about their life growing up with such a musical tradition flowing through them. Home videos of the younger Wainwrights staging their own operas contrast against the mammoth task of getting his Prima Donna to its opening night. One for opera fans, Rufus fans and everyone in between. ES"
