Rufus Does JudyHighlights from the Carnegie Hall Concerts
For one glorious night only, the incomparable Rufus Wainwright brings the two works closest to his heart to Adelaide.His recreation of Judy Garlands 1961 Carnegie Hall concert first wowed audiences in 2006 and once again in New York and Toronto in 2016. As a gift to the Australian audience he adores, Rufus will perform a set of the most beloved songs from Rufus Does Judy with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra.
A new concert version of Prima Donna, his first venture into the world of opera, accompanied by a film directed by Franceso Vezzoli starring the legendary Cindy Sherman, was a highlight of the Avignon and Hong Kong arts festivals this year. (Fans will know the sublime closing aria Les Feux dArtifice from his 2010 album All Days Are Nights: Songs for Lulu.)
Dont miss the unique opportunity to see this amazing double bill by the artist Sir Elton John called the greatest songwriter on the planet.
