Our exploration into the heart of one of the 20th Century’s operatic masterpieces is completed by The Borough. Devised by the theatre company Punchdrunk, inspired by the opera and George Crabbe’s poem on which the opera is based, The Borough is a theatrical and sonic journey around the town, encountering the real and imagined community of the opera.
