A baby is thrown into the fire, Judy is stabbed to death, and Punch becomes set against anyone who opposes him. No light-hearted children’s show, the Punch And Judy story as interpreted by composer Harrison Birtwistle and his librettist Stephen Pruslin is harsh and violent from the outset. All this makes for a striking portrayal of the psychological damage violence can inflict as we follow Punch’s journey to the gallows in pursuit of Pretty Polly.

Sung in English.
