Episode 21: Matthew Thomas

Matthew Thomas's performance of Eight Songs for a Mad King (Peter Maxwell Davies) on the inaugural Melbourne Festival was "astoundingly effective" wrote ArtsHub in a review. The piece calls for "a realisation of [a] deranged royal... demanding a range of three octaves, a raft of extended vocal technique (some extreme), and fine acting skills."  Thomas talks with RBF Australia's co-director Jane Sheldon about the evening.
