with Rufus Wainwright, Francesco Vezzoli and Cindy Sherman
Rufus Wainwright, Francesco Vezzoli and Cindy Sherman, three of the most important artists of our time in their respective domain – music and the visual arts – have all extensively worked on the theme of stars or divas as mythological figures in our contemporary society.
On this subject, Rufus Wainwright wrote “Prima Donna” – an opera for 3 performers inspired by a series of Maria Callas interviews. This new version of “Prima Donna” is accompanied by a film piececreated for the occasion by Francesco Vezzoli. The great Cindy Sherman will play the role of Maria Callas.
In the second part of the show, Rufus Wainwright himself will perform in concert.
