“Radius are the sum of a remarkable group of parts
and demand to be listened to and engaged with”
Welcome to Radius
Radius specialises in the production of contemporary opera and music theatre works.
Radius was founded in 2006 as a specialist contemporary classical chamber music ensemble based in London, United Kingdom. With a reputation for outstanding musicianship and innovative ideas, the high standard of our performances has been critically acclaimed by the national and musical press.
Radius have appeared on tour at theatres and festivals nationwide, at prestigious venues including London’s Wigmore Hall and Southbank Centre, and have given the first performances of many new works.
Next Production: LIFE STORIES
Our next production is LIFE STORIES: a double bill of new one-act operas by Tim Benjamin with words by Anton Chekhov and Anthony Peter, featuring the sensational voices of Taylor Wilson (mezzo-soprano) and James Fisher (bass). LIFE STORIES will tour in the north of England in early July 2015 before appearing at the 2015 Tête-à-Tête festival in London, 23-24 July.
