Movie Details

Canadian singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright took a dramatic turn in his career as a pop icon when he realized a lifelong fascination by penning his very first opera, Prima Donna, between 2008 and 2009. This heartfelt and intimate, behind-the-scenes documentary follows Wainwright on the said creative journey, from his obsessions with opera as a child through the initial staging of Prima Donna at the Manchester International Festival in early July 2009. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
