Singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright presents his Shakespeare Sonnets, a collection of his own compositions on beloved texts by the most performed playwright in the world - William Shakespeare - who died 400 years ago on 23 April.

Wainwright is joined on this album by Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine on key track When in Disgrace, and teams up with sister Martha Wainwright on An Unperfect Actor. Always fascinated by the operatic voice, Rufus has enlisted soprano Anna Prohaska for a number of classically inspired tracks together with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. In celebration of this Shakespeare Year, Wainwright has also collaborated with some of the most revered actors of our time to record spoken word versions of each of the Sonnets, including Helena Bonham Carter, Sian Philips, Peter Eyre, Carrie Fisher and William Shatner.
