In June, Miss Mussel interviewed Rufus Wainwright for the Los Angeles Times. We chatted a bit about the North American premiere of his opera Prima Donna as well as loads of other classical music stuff. As always, a pile of really great material didn’t make it into the final piece. Once Miss Mussel returns from her cottageland holiday, she will sort through it all and post some of the best bits.
Until then, here’s Rufus singing one of his mother’s songs as an encore to his Songs For Lulu album tour. Miss Mussel saw the show in Toronto and even in a room full of too-cool-for-school media types, there wasn’t a dry eye.
