Singer Rufus Wainwright will bring his mix of contemporary and classical sound to the Dubai Opera on December 6. Wainwright's first opera Prima Donna also enjoyed a solid international run during 2009. The songs from the production was released in a double album (also called Prima Donna) that same year. Wainwright is currently working on a new opera to be released in October next year. Wainwright comes to Dubai on the back of his latest album, the theatrically themed Take All My Loves: 9 Shakespeare Sonnets, which features adaptations of the great bard's works with guest appearances by an eclectic array of actors including the late Carrie Fisher Helena Bonham Carter and William Shatner. The album was released in tribute to the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death.
