Rufus Wainwright in Brooklyn (more by David Andrako)
Rufus Wainwright's Prima Donna opera is currently running live at BAM. The NY Times was at opening night and unfortunately wasn't impressed. The Daily News has a review too. Check BAM's site for tickets to remaining performances.
Sick of all this opera stuff, and just yearning for a good old fashioned performance by Rufus? If so, you got your wish, as Rufus Wainwright will return to the Howard Gilman Opera House at BAM on May 9, 2012 for what appears to be a regular concert, and tickets are on pre-sale now.
