Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright releases his debut opera, Prima Donna, for the first time on audio since its 2009 premiere at the Manchester International Festival.  The recording, just released on October 2 on Deutsche Grammophon/UMC follows the live event, Prima Donna: A Symphonic Visual Concert held at the Athens Festival in Greece in September. Prima Donna's central character, a retired Diva struggling to make her return to the stage and regain her former years of greatness, was inspired by the BBC Lord Harewood interviews with Maria Callas in her later years.
