11 a ca­reer-span­ning con­cert

Toronto Life - - Culture -

Ru­fus Wain­wright’s epony­mous de­but al­bum, re­leased in 1998, gar­nered crit­i­cal praise and a Juno award, launch­ing him into a multi-faceted ca­reer. Over the past two decades, much has hap­pened to the Mon­treal-bred war­bler: his Judy Gar­land tribute at Carnegie Hall, an ex­per­i­men­tal Shake­speare al­bum and, most re­cently, the world pre­miere of his sec­ond opera, Hadrian. For his All These Poses Tour, Wain­wright cel­e­brates a 20-year ca­reer by go­ing back to his roots, draw­ing heav­ily from his ’98 de­but and its 2001 fol­low-up, Poses. In true ex­per­i­men­tal Wain­wright fash­ion, he’ll also take a brief de­tour to per­form a Don­ald Trump rap.
