Work2017, No.2 »The Miracle«
The Miracle was a multi-media adaptation (directed by Michel Carré) of Max Reinhardt's wordless spectacular stage production of Karl Vollmoeller's play.
The multi-media adaptation had played to huge audiences at the Olympia, London exhibition hall in 1911–1912.
The story tells about a wayward nun, Megildis, who deserts her convent with a knight, influenced by the music of a Jewish minstrel. A statue of the Virgin Mary comes to life. Virgin Mary takes place of Megildis, who makes her way through the world and its many vicissitudes.
