Rufus Wainwright will be tickling the ivories and singing some songs in Ottawa on Nov 12 at the National Arts Centre's Southam Hall. The New York-based Canadian artist is performing as part of the inaugural season of NAC Presents, an all-Canadian performance series.

Wainwright will also appear in Montreal on Sunday, Dec 11 for A Not So Silent Night: Christmas with the Wainwrights and McGarrigles at Montreal's Théâtre St-Denis.

Xtra caught up with Wainwright in Toronto last year before the opening of his opera Prima Donna. Wainwright walked the red carpet with partner Jörn Weisbrodt, who is now artistic director of Toronto's Luminato festival.
