Critically acclaimed debut opera by Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and composer Rufus Wainwright, first time on disc

“Prima Donna” centers on a day in the life of an ageing opera singer, who is anxiously preparing for her comeback in 1970s Paris. Once a soprano with a powerhouse voice and a reputation to match, she's been discarded – disdained by critics and forgotten by audiences. But the diva is determined to prove her doubters wrong: all she asks is a chance to reprise the role that made her reputation all those years ago.
