The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

Matthew Rose is one of the world’s finest operatic basses. In 2006 he made an acclaimed debut at the Glyndebourne Festival Opera as Bottom (Britten A Midsummer Night’s Dream), for which he received the John Christie Award, and he has since performed at opera houses throughout the world. He and William Vann (“A special word for William Vann’s deft pianism” - Gramophone) perform Schubert’s monumental song cycle Winterreise, the ultimate wanderer’s tale. The protagonist embarks on a journey through a winter landscape that leads him to question both his own identity and the meaning of life.
