Set to be yet another highlight for Rufus Wainwright's 2010 calendar, he heads out on a 12-date solo UK tour in April.

In addition to this, his acclaimed debut opera 'Prima Donna' comes to London for a series of shows in April. It follows Prima Donna's celebrated debut performances at Manchester's International Festival last July.

Rufus admits that recording 'All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu' was one of the most difficult things he has ever done. "After hiding behind a 70-piece orchestra with my opera you can blame everything on the tuba player. With this album when the curtain is raised it's me on my own," says Rufus.

Strapped with a resounding emotional heft, the intense 12-track record opens in arresting fashion with "Who Are You New York?", Rufus' ode to the city and his most positive America song. "Les Feux D’Artifice T'Appellent", which is the final aria from Rufus' opera, "Prima Donna," is another highlight. "Zebulon," a song about one of Rufus' high school sweethearts will be familiar to fans who have seen his recent concerts, is a majestic performance.
