Popera Redux

Some new information about pop singer Rufus Wainwright's opera has emerged. We touched on this a bit back when it was announced the opera would no longer be performed at the Met due to Rufus insisting the opera be sung in French. Seems now the work will be seen at the Manchester International Festival next year. Reading more about what Rufus has to say about the composing experience is quite fascinating and he seems to know his stuff. Still no word if it will make its way to the States but let us hope a succcessful premiere will proper it somewhere across the pond.
