Rufus Wainwright to headline Operanation 8: A Muse Ball

Exciting news for Torontonians who love a good party: Rufus Wainwright, the beloved Canadian singer/songwriter and, of late, opera composer, will be headlining Operanation 8: A Muse Ball

Wainwright, whose opera Prima Donna recently premiered at the Royal Opera House in London and has been announced for New York City Opera's 2011/2012 season, has been referred to as "the greatest songwriter on the planet" by no less a songwriter than Elton John. 

Operanation 8: A Muse Ball will take place at the Four Seasons Centre on the evening of Oct. 21. Tickets will be available starting Sept. 1. Mark your calendars! And for a sampling of his songwriting, both operatic and otherwise, check out this documentary trailer:
