Beyond Classical

with Rufus Wainwright

Our traditional New Year’s tour ventures beyond the boundaries of classical music. Following their success in 2017, the prince of chamber pop Rufus Wainwright returns to delight Dutch audiences together with Sinfonietta in january 2023.

After their resoundingly successful tour in 2017, Rufus Wainwright is back on stage with Amsterdam Sinfonietta for a new spectacular programme: a 90-minute journey “Devils and Angels” with pieces and songs inspired by Love and Hate. In addition to songs by Rufus such as Devils and Angels and Westside Waltz, you will hear covers by Prince, Paul Simon and Woodkid, among others. Classical pieces that intertwine with pop songs; Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde with Wainwright’s Early Morning Madness, or Philip Glass’ seamless transition in Devils and Angels. Popular hits from their last collaboration will be combined with new compositions.
