Matthew Rose started studying music at school in West Sussex before going on to study at University in Canterbury, where he worked with Benjamin Luxon and Sheila Amit. After a precarious car journey to Urbania in Italy, he took part in a programme - surrounded by many, more experienced singers - that changed the course of his career. Soon after he was one of very few students studying at the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music in Pennsylvania, where he immersed himself not only in the programme but in the surrounding musical environment - from local concerts to weekly visits to Carnegie Hall and the Met. Going on to join the Vilar Young Artist’s Programme at the Royal Opera House, and making his Glyndebourne debut with Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Matthew’s career has gone from strength to strength, seeing him on stages from the Met to the Royal Opera House, from La Monnaie to the Deustche Oper among many, many others. With the John Christie Award and a Grammy alongside his many incredible achievements, Matthew gives a frank insight into his road to success.
