Rufus Wainwright

As singer, songwriter, author, composer, and even screen actor (Scorsese’s The Aviator), Rufus Wainwright has carved out his own singular place in the worlds of rock, opera, theater, dance, and film. But he’s best known as the man Elton John referred to as “the greatest songwriter on the planet,” one of the great male vocalists and songwriters of his generation. Coming off the release of his seventh studio album, Out of the Game, produced by Grammy winner Mark Ronson, Rufus Wainwright brings his incomparable voice to Davies Symphony Hall for a one-night-only performance.

“[Rufus Wainwright] is simply, fabulously, and stunningly talented.”   —BBCs
