Borka is a goose – born on the East Anglian marshes with no feathers. But this doesn't stop her trying to learn to fly and swim. But she is abandoned by her family and friends, forcing her into a life of adventures. She is finally rescued and taken to Kew Gardens. The story is about being different – and how this is not such a bad thing.
This new opera for children and their families, performed by eight singers, musicians and puppeteers, is based on the classic, prize-winning, illustrated book by John Burningham.
"It was fantastic! What a lovely way to introduce opera to young children. They loved it!" Teacher, Queensbridge Primary School
