Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents excerpts from the highly anticipated U.S. premiere of New York City Opera's Prima Donna, singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright's first foray into opera. NYCO's George Steel moderates a discussion with Wainwright and members of the creative team including director Tim Albery, conductor Jayce Ogren, and associate director Joanna Turner. Rising star Melody Moore sings the tour-de-force role of a once-acclaimed soprano, haunted by her past success and present reality as she seeks to return to the spotlight.
