The Ground Beneath Her Feet

For this MIF07 world premiere, Salman Rushdie’s epic novel The Ground Beneath Her Feet was transformed into a full-length multimedia concert piece. Victoria Borisova-Ollas’s ravishing score was performed by Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé – with Mike Figgis’s film and Alan Rickman’s narration adding extra dimensions.

Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival.
