For the first time, an original soundtrack from a Punchdrunk show is available.

The Vinyl Factory has released the original soundtrack to Punchdrunk’s The Burnt City on vinyl.

Marking the first time that a soundtrack from a Punchdrunk show is available for audiences to listen to at home, the score to The Burnt City is now on limited edition double vinyl.

Punchdrunk’s longest show in its 24-year history, The Burnt City was inspired by Aeschylus’ Agamemnon and Euripides’ Hecuba and transported the greatest of Greek tragedies to a sprawling neon metropolis.

The show’s score features 14 tracks across two different coloured marbled discs to represent the worlds of Troy and Greece. The record also holds the exclusive track “Epilogue” which has previously only been heard by the audience at the final performance of The Burnt City‘s run.

Founded in 2000 by Felix Barrett, Punchdrunk has pioneered a game-changing form of theatre which places the audience at the very heart of the action. Listed amongst the 50 most influential artists of the last 50 years (Sky Arts, 2022) alongside David Bowie, Sir Steve McQueen and Vivienne Westwood, Punchdrunk disrupts the theatrical norm, creating worlds in which audiences can rediscover the childlike excitement of exploring the unknown.

Punchdrunk’s iconic “mask” shows, which redefined the genre of immersive experiences, have been cited among the 40 creative moments that changed culture (Creative Review), and have found phenomenal success across the globe, with record-breaking productions established in the US, UK and China.

The packaging for The Burnt City features original artwork and photography and has been designed and produced by A Right/Left Project (Stephen Dobbie & Colin Nightingale, Punchdrunk Associate Artists). Each edition is hand-numbered, and has a debossed gatefold, hand-screen printed poly inner sleeves and a four-page insert with full show credits.
