Rufus Wainwright is releasing a deluxe 19 disc box set to commemorate his five night Haus of Rufus residency at London’s Royal Opera House from July 18 to July 23.

The extensive collection spans the critically acclaimed singer’s entire career.

It is housed in a 90-page hardback book with red velvet covers and contains rare and unseen photos as well as the gay icon’s early hand-drawn tour posters, handwritten lyrics, four art prints and other memorabilia.

House Of Rufus contains all six of his studio albums: Rufus Wainwright, Poses, Want One, Want Two, Release The Stars and All Days Are Nights: Songs for Lulu, all now with additional previously unreleased bonus material.

There are also two concert CDs – Milwaukee at Last!!! and Rufus Does Judy at Carnegie Hall – and four additional CDs including Rufus Rarities, Rufus At The Movies, Friends & Family and a collection of demos.

The mammoth package also comes with 6 DVDs.
