“Radius are the sum of a remarkable group of parts
and demand to be listened to and engaged with”



Our most recent production was 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 toured in the North of England in February and March 2016, having previously toured in the North in 2015 and appearing (to great critical acclaim) at the 2015 Tête-à-Tête festival in London.
