Awwww is the sound and awe is the state when a tried'n'true interviewer (that would be me) gets to talk to a cultural icon and personal hero; and so it was on Thursday August 18th, 2011 when BookHampton's guest speaker was acclaimed singer and composer Rufus Wainwright. He came to speak about opera as part of our ongoing On The Edge Series. His newest work is a full-length opera, Prima Donna. It was hailed by the London Times as "more than an opera, it is rather a love song  to opera; a work that recognizes the great tradition and full Romantic sound of the late-nineteeth and early-twentieth century composers."
