Michael Rose


At the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Michael Rose is studying with Mikhail Kazakevich, pursuing his undergraduate degree in Piano Performance. Michael also takes interest in the art song repertoire, recently a finalist in the RBC Stuart Cameron Smith French Song Prize and prior to this, a finalist in the 2020 Delia Hall accompanist prize and the 2019 Edward Brooks Lieder Prize. He benefited greatly from the 2020 Home Sweet Home Vox Box project exploring themes of family and belonging. This was lead by Iain Burnside who, in several coaching sessions imparted many valuable insights. Michael collaborates frequently with the Vocal and Operatic department at RBC, accompanying language and performance classes. The height of these collaborations result in Michael acting as repetiteur for the Opera and Opera Scenes productions that are presented throughout the year. He has played scenes from Handel's Acis and Galatea and Giulio Cesare, Massenet's Cendrillon, Gounod's Faust, Janacek's The Cunning Little Vixen, Stravinsky's The Rakes Progress, Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Rape of Lucretia, Strauss' Ariadne auf Naxos, Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin and Bellini's I Capuletti e I Montecchi. He has worked as repetiteur for the 2020 production of Mark-Anthony Turnage's 'Coraline' as well as Cumbria Opera Group's 2021 double bill, 'A Hand of Bridge' and 'Trouble in Tahiti.' He looks forward to acting as repetiteur for the Spring 2022 production of 'Banished' by Stephen Mcneff. He hopes to focus further on repetiteur studies at postgraduate level.
